Merry Monday #125 - Use a Vehicle

Hey everyone, it's Monday and that means time for another fun challenge at Merry Monday!  This week's theme is chosen by the uber-talented Debbie and she would like to see us make a Christmas card using a vehicle or transportation.  I found this adorable file in the Silhouette Online Store and decided to use it as my main image.  Let's just say it had a lot of tiny little pieces to glue, lol.  A LOT.

Here's the inspiration photo from Debbie:
