Where is Santa Claus?

I made this card with the Marianne challenge in mind, and the challenge is black and white, or favourite colour combination.
I die cut the sleigh and reindeer, and village scene and adhered them to a panel of glitter card cut with a Spellbinders card creator die. I added Liquid Pearl reins and snow, with glitter on top for the snow.
I die cut the star borders and used some of the stars from that in the sky.
I stamped the sentiment onto a banner and heat embossed it with sparkly embossing powder, and finally I added some stickles glue to the star border.

I have used the following Marianne products:
LR0178 Sleigh
LR0178 Reindeer
LR0173 Village 2
LR0134 Christmas Star border
LR0421 Anja Lables
CS0862 Clear stamps
