GOOD SKATES

Hi, hope you're having a good Tuesday.  It's snowing here today, big giant flakes!
It had rained and all the Christmas snow was gone, but now the ground is covered again!




I used the sketch at Just Us Girls Challenge # 65.  The papers are from S.E.I., Winter Song. The stamp is from Rubber Cottage, Medina, Ohio.  I stamped the image with onyx black Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder on textured white card stock.  I colored with Copic Markers.  Stamped snowflakes with frayed burlap distress ink, stamps Martha Stewart.  Punched snowflakes with rhinestone centers.  Brown card stock is run through snowflake embossing folder.  Tim Holtz frame.  


Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great rest of the day.  Until later..............

This is just gorgeous Sue! I love the rustic feel to this and the image of the skates is oh so beautiful it just brings back memories of skating on the pond at camp when I was little with my grandparents! sigh...
Thanks for getting sketchy with JUGS this week!

I love your card! And everything about it! The details are beautiful (the heat embossing, the stamped snowflakes to occupy the empty space, the frayed edge) and I totally think the Tim Holtz frame holds it all together without distracting from the card! Beautiful!
