No reindeer allowed

I received this fun Santa image from Monika and she asked me if I could make something for today. Of course I said yes. You can find this image in her shop, Monika's Little Shop.
So I printed the image, colored it with my Promarkers and added glossy accent to the sign.
Then I thought of a scenery where no reindeers are allowed. I went with a city and created a cityscape winter wonderland using my Memory Box die. I cut out three strips, from silver, grey and black cardstock, glued them together and mounted them on foam onto a embossed snow panel.
I tore white paper to make the snowy ground, added glitter glue and a strip of lace.
I die cut three stars with a Memory Box die and attached a silver sequin to each centre.

This card is also for these challenges:
