The sleigh is attached from the base, the flowers are tucked and glued, into the sleigh then the leaves are added from behind. 

Make the sentiment and adhere with the coral swirl peeking from behind.

The mini gold string of pearls,  are adhered to the seahorse’s neck and sleigh front swirl.

Add a flower to hide the join. 

Apply crystal lacquer or clear glue in thin lines along the border then sprinkle the Turquoise flakes.  This makes it so... yum!

Add the pink pearls to the flower centres. The pearl centres makes the under water scene so much more appealing and luxurious.

To finish, as always, apply a layer of stickles to the flower stamens, swirls on the sleigh and to the seahorses. Can't not have any bling!

A close, close up of the stickles placement...and this wonderful sea-horses!

You can see how the stickles, follows the swirl lines. You also get a angled close up of the gold string of pearls connecting to the sleigh front.
Well, I hope you had fun on this visit, seeing how it can be so much fun thinking out of the box. This sleigh can be used in so many ways in combo with other collections...another reason why getting each collection can be a wise investment....hahaha.
