Roller Skates

Happy Tuesday!  Exciting news --  Doodle Pantry will be releasing new products every Tuesday, and the new products for that day will be marked down 25% off!!  Be sure to stop by the Doodle Pantry store to check out the new goodies and samples by the team.

For today's release, I worked with the new set, Roller Skates.  Here is a preview of everything this set includes:

For my card, I used one of the outline images from the set, and paper-pieced the laces with red dotted digi paper from Balloon Ants Color.  I also used the same paper for one of the background layers.  Coloring was done with Copics. Embellishments include Spirelli string art, a dotted bow and prima flower.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Craft-Dee Bow Z January Challenge CDB21 -- Anything Goes with a handmade bow
A Gem of a Challenge #135 -- Something New (My image and sentiment are new.)
Pile it On Challenge #50 -- Digi Paper and/or pre-colored digi image ( I used digi paper to paper-piece the laces of the roller skates and also use the same digi paper for one of the layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a great day!
