Christmas Skates

Hello 🙂 It’s time to share my DT inspiration for the current ATG Challenge at Creative Fingers. We are being sponsored by the fabulous Jan’s Digi Stamps, who gave the DT members some images to play with. I chose the gorgeous Christmas Skates, part of this set. I colored the image with my Copics, then matted it with some silver mirror card stock.

I thought a pretty white and silver color palette would really show off this beautiful image nicely. To add a bit of texture, I ran a piece of paper through a dotted embossing folder then matted and layered it, adding a die cut sentiment from the silver paper. After adding a pretty red bow, the front panel was ready to adhere to the card base. I die cut the edge of the base into a lacy scallop, then popped on a silver border. I added the finished panel, and another Christmas card went into the pile for this year 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
