Our Challenge is perfect for this time of year....SPARKLE & SHINE~We also have a great sketch if you chose to use it. This fun image and sentiment set is called Dashing Through the Sky by ARTish. You can find it and lots of others here.
This is a few of the crazy houses I made for a little village set. It is going to be a gift for my sister. I thought it would be fun to have Santa flying in so I attached him on a piece of acetate. It barely shows so really looks as if he is suspended in the air. I watercolored the image and used some stickles on the clouds and sleigh runners. Added a little dimensional paint to the beard, mustache, cap and cuffs. Then cut him and the sentiments out and attached to the acetate.

MY village started as wooden blocks painted and covered with dps. Sure doesn't show here but decorated with layered snowflakes and Lots of SPARKLE with blue, irridecent and silver stickles, jewels, beads and silver foil.

Supplies: SU, BoBunny & DC designs paper, Stickles, acetate, memento ink, assorted stickles, dimensional paint, MS snowflake and loop punches, hand dyed ribbon, foam dots, beads, jewels and bells from my stash.
