Santa Clause is Coming to Town Pop-Up Card - Color Dare #474 "Fancy 5"

Here is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #474 "Fancy Five". Going through my stash found a die, not yet used, a town house pop-up that could be used for a Christmas card using the color board below in non-traditional colors.  The pop-up included all the pieces needed to create a small town so the inside of my card was completed first and using instructions here.  

Cut a piece of design paper in avocado for the backdrop of my colorful town using all but Flamingo from the Color Board.  After pop-up assembled used extra house cuts in each side of the pop-up town. 

Had no idea what I was going to use for the front of the card until my childhood imagination told me that "Santa Clause is Comin' to Town".  I didn't have the music sheet but the Internet did.  Modified to fit my card, added the song title using closest to Papaja color, printed and adhered to the Avocado cardstock.  Cut three dies of Santa and his reindeer using Harbour cardstock.  Adhered one directly to the music sheet and layered the other two. Cut off sleigh and placed between the deers already adhered on the music sheet using 3D thin foam tape for dimension. 

Other photos taken at a slight angle to show the dimension.
