Some Day Right Dad?

This card idea has been bouncing around in my head for weeks so I'm glad I finally had time to get it out. 

I sponged my sky and the moon with distress inks, added some Stickles for snow and stamped Santa and his sleigh and some trees. I was getting impatient with the drying time on the Stickles but I'm glad I waited! I used a die to cut the snowbanks and created my sentiment on my computer. The reindeer are coloured with alcohol markers and the large one is fussy cut, the mini one is cut using the matching die.
