MMSC74 - "Free Ride" - Ice Skates

Greetings Bloggers and welcome to another week of the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. This week I used an image from Stitchy Stamps called Free Ride. I won my choice of 3 images from them at a challenge blog I played at. Although you can not see it in the picture so well, I glittered these skates and they are so pretty IRL.

This is the inside of my card. I used last years Christmas paper selection from My Minds Eye. I cut the snowflakes with a Martha Stewart Punch and glittered them with "Waterfall" stickles. I distressed inked the edges of all the paper and put the "waterfall" stickles over the top....even on the red and IRL it is so awesome.
This is my card inside the box I made with the cover. I am so in the mood to make Christmas cards. I will be playing all week. I have some DT commitments that will have me playing with Christmas images all week!!! Hope you find inspiration to pull out your Christmas papers and start your projects.

Challenges Entered:
Incy Wincy Designs - Sparkly and Glitter
Karber Weekly - Use a Digital Image
Ooh-La-La Challenge - Nothing Floral
Paper Play - Ribbons, Buttons, or Rhinestones
