This week piecing challenge for Mark's Finest Papers challenge blog

I had so much trouble doing this card and I really shouldn't have. Oh! well at least I didn't give up.
This card represent a midnight sleigh ride.
The ribbon is the star filled night.
The stamp set I used is called Bells on Bobtails by Mark's Finest Papers.
It doesn't look like there is a lot of piecing on my card but there really is quite a lot.
First I stamped the image onto a matching piece of dp, then I cut out the piece where the reins are "by the hourses head, the reins behind the horse, the reins in the boys hands and the bottom of the sleigh where all of the scrolls are".
I popped the main image and then popped the sleigh once more.
The image is inked in Palette Noir and colored with Copic markers.
I added some silver pearls to the horse's harness and to the sleigh to look like bells.
Supplies can be found at Mark's Finest Papers.
