Santa's sleigh

I've been on kind of a Christmas kick recently.  I'm trying out a bunch of different ideas and still haven't quite settled on what I want to do for my Christmas cards this year.  Last year, they were done in August!  

This is one that I'd had floating around in my head since the Create a Critter 2 handbook was released online.  I just got Create a Critter 2 last week, so this is one of the first cards I've made with it!  The sleigh was cut at 3 inches and all the reindeer were at 2.25 inches.  The two standing reindeer are from CAC2 and the Rudolph is from the original CAC cartridge.  I put a piece of string from the sleigh to the back reindeer to show that they're hooked up and ready to fly.  It's hard to see in the picture, but Rudolph has Glossy Acccents on his nose.  After all, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a VERY shiny nose.  :)

The sentiment is a leftover sticker that I had from some projects I made a few years ago.  The background paper is from All Seasons 2 by Paper Studio.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
