Don't stop believin'

Hi everyone!
Christmas cards are just irresistible to me....
...and sometimes they are a little weird too 😏

It is gazing wide-eyed into the starry winter sky - but please don't ask me what kind of animal it is....
It's a Katzelkraft stamp from the "Les Dodus" set. The swirls are from Katzelkraft too, but no longer available.

I started by stamping the stars (the full are stenciled) and the swirls with Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder. Sponged the background with 3 different shades of blue (Distress Oxide). So that the white designs came out again, I cleaned them with a paper towel. 
I stamped the animal and Santa with his reindeer. Stamped the animal once more on white paper, colored it with alcohol markers and cut it out. Did the same with Santa's sleigh (just the sleigh). I stamped the sentiment and attached the animal and Santa's sleigh. The snow hill at the bottom is a piece of torn and embossed paper.
