Skating By in Snowflakes.

Every week I say I am going to do TMITA challenge early rather than waiting til the last minute but here I am again close to the deadline on Sunday night.  This week, the challenge at There's Magic In the Air from Pat P was to make a Christmas card and to include some snowflakes! I had wanted to use acetate and cut out snowflakes on my card but ended doing this card instead. I used one of my fave images from Paper Cupcakes "Flying By"...a skating penguin. The image was printed with a reflection and colored in pencils and OMS. I added some glossy accents, stickles, and used a silver pen on the skates. I attached the images to a background scene that I printed on Printshop and cut into an oval shape. Used a Cuttlebug EF Snowflakes on my navy base card and wiped it with Brilliance Ink Moonlight White to highlight the design. Cut a oval frame for the image and attached to the card. Finished by stamping Sentiment from Creative Clear Stamps with the same ink Moonlight White onto an smaller oval of  navy CS.

Will talk more when I am not in a rush.
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
