J is for Jingle Bells - ABC Christmas Challenge

I made this card at the weekend for the ABC Christmas challenge, because in the list of blogs I follow was the title "J is for...". But when I clicked on the link it had vanished and I guess Blogger had got confused between scheduled and draft, as has happened to me before now:). Anyway the challenge is here today and so is my card:).

I used my much-loved Fjord horse image, called Sleigh Ride, from Phindys Place again, this time I really stuck to a limited palette, I was determined to use the DP, which is from Magnolia. The sheet music is Silent Night. I saw the DP at the NEC last November and only wish I'd thought to buy more than 1 sheet, it's been so hard to cut into this! I've used a little gold glitter for the bells on the harness and a few places on the image, which is coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, the flower is a Prima and I punched the leaves with a Woodware punch, which happens to fit the optional extra challenge.
