Mon. Dec. 13, 2010 Challenge STVSKSP6

Wow- it's Monday again and the days are flying by. Thanks to all of you that have commented over the weekend. The CSS Hop was a lot of fun and I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the "love" left here!

Gina has another sketch challenge for us today.

I decided to make a Happy Holidays card, using this sketch.  I CB'd the bg panels with the a Snowflake embossing folder. and used Asparagus PL cs for my base along with some Basic Grey cranberry print. The ice skates are from the Winter Wonderland Stamp TV kit, and the sentiment is from Gina's Light of the Season kit.  Both sets are available here. To make the ice look more realistic, I cut a piece of packaging acrylic and tucked it in behind the blades of the skates.

Thanks for stopping by!

Terrific card and great idea to use acrylic for ice look-alike!

Very smart to use the acrylic for the ice. Never would have thought of that even though I do cut pieces from the packaging to use. I also like the BG dp because it is so subtle and makes the skates stand out.

Nice "wall" set up and the flake emboss is perfect with your skates!
