Lesley has a great sketch for us this week and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use the ice skates image from the 'Winter Memories" set. I just love this set and hadn't inked up this particular image yet. I've also got snow on the brain, since the mountains that surround the valley I live in just got their first dusting of the white stuff and Denali Natl Park, 150 miles north of me, got a couple of inches over the weekend! Therefore I decided to just use the same snowflake DSP for all the elements of this sketch. I did change the 2nd strip across the middle by moving it to the right and making it a small strand of silver stretch cord instead of paper. I added some Dazzling Details and Stickles to help give the image a little 'pop'.
Make sure you head over to the Merry Monday challenge over at Always Playing With Paper and check out the rest of the great cards from the design team, and then make sure you play along. Christmas is only 105 days away! :)
