MMSC120 -- Pair of Skates

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I have a card to share today for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (SC120) .  I combined the sketch with a beautiful, new digital image, Pair of Ice Skates, by "priscillastyles".  I colored my image with Copics; added some jewelry spacers and silver rhinestones to create "faux" metal pegs; and used some patterned 'ice skates' paper that I have been hoarding in my stash waiting for the perfect image. I also added a panel of striped vellum for interest and texture.  A big glitzy bow was all I needed and my design was finished.  Don't you just love when an idea you have in your head works out on paper!? 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Belli Challenge #125 -- Acetate or Vellum

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Wow! That is just gorgeous! The papers are just divine!

  2. What a wonderful card, love the colors and the image is so much fun. What a great idea to use spacers as to hang the skates, I never think about my jewelry making things on my cards. Love it.

  3. Pat this is just darling. The ice blug color and pretty ribbon are the perfect accompaniment for your ice skating theme. What a beautiful card filled with luscious eye candy.
