Commissioned Christmas Card


I was asked to make a Christmas card for a little girl who loves ice-skating so the freebie image at Pattie's Creations was the perfect image for me to use.  I have used some oddments of blue glitter paper, striped paper and also a scrap of mirri card that I put in one of Tim Holtz's embossing folders.  I have coloured the image in with promarkers and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Faded Jeans distress ink pad.  The card is finished off simply with some card candy and a ticket sentiment from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop.

This card fits the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge - Embossing
Digistamps 4 Joy - Inspired by Christmas/Holiday Season
Paper Pretties - Embossing
ABC Challenge - H is for Holidays
Stamp Something - Anything goes digi
Winter Wonderland - Winter sports

2 Sisters - Christmas

Hi Kym, first can I apologise for the lack of comments I have been keeping an eye on your gorgeous work and did try and leave some comments but for some reason blogger wouldn't let me and kept coming up with error codes. Anyway I am hoping it works this time, because I wanted to tell you how much I love this card, the colours, design and the image are fabulous thank you for sharing this with us at Creative Inspirations Challenge.
