Skating - The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #170

Yesterday was market day and I was very tired when I got home.  But for some reason after a couple of hours of sleep I woke up and couldn't return to sleep - so I got up and made a few cards.  My poor cats couldn't figure out what was going on, as their routine had been disrupted (as was mine).

This card is based on the sketch at The Sweet Stop here

 

This 5 by 5" card has an Early Espresso base, with a Very Vanilla layer embossed 3 times with the delicate design folder (a strip)
To create the focal image, four different stamp sets were used - Winter Post (the skaters), Make a Mitten (snowflakes), Joyous Celebration (the red bow), and Petite Pairs (the sentiment)

Stamps:  Winter Post, Make a Mitten, Joyous Celebration, Petite Pairs
Inks: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Real Red
Papers: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Candlelight Series Paper
Accessories: Oval die, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Word window punch, Silver glitter, rhinestones, 1/4" Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, Delicate design folder, dimensionals
