Gilded Sleigh

I had a lovely crafternoon with Mum yesterday playing with gilding flakes.  This was one of my favourite stamps from last year but I hadn't tried using it with Indigo Blu Flitter glu and gilding flakes before so we decided to give it a go.  It's a nice, large stamp, perfect for larger cards such as this A5 one.  The flakes I've used here are called Morris Dance.
The embossed dotty card is Hunkydory, the snowflake pearl paper is Papermania from the Home for Christmas range and the card I've stamped onto is chocolate brown pearl card.
The border punch is Martha Stewart, one of my favourites for Christmas cards.
The sentiment stamp is also Papermania and has been heat embossed with gold powder.
The poinsettias were made with Nellie Snellen punches.
I've added some gold ribbon, a bow, some brown gems, dots of Liquid Pearls and some gold Card Candi as finishing touches.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Dream Valley - #30 - earth tones
One Stitch at a Time - #110 - anything goes
Pile It On - #17 - sparkle and shine
Kimbee's Creations - sketch - I've rotated it and swapped the flowers and sentiment round
