Vintage Sleigh Silhouette Scene

Hello, everyone!  Here I am again today, this time with a Christmas card featuring a freebie image from Graphics Fairy called Vintage Sleigh Silhouette Scene.  I changed the colour to blue before printing. I wanted to play along in Poppystamps Beauty of Winter challenge so I have displayed their Blooming Poinsettia die prominently on my card.

The card base is embossed with Cuttlebug Tiffany.  I added a couple other die cuts (cut from leftover snippets):  tree from Cheery Lynn, and a sleigh from Whiff of Joy that I received for Christmas from my lovely friend Marion (thank you!)  

The sentiment is a clear stamp from Papermania, stamped in StazOn Azure.  I added white glitter all along the snowy parts of the image, tree and sleigh die cuts, and even a bit on the sentiment. Some pearls were affixed to the poinsettia, and I added a snowflake charm tied with white eyelash ribbon.
