Ice skating

Hello from the arctic tundra!  At least that's what it's felt like here this week.  In the spirit of the weather, I decided to make a card about ice skating.  I cut the image from the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut cartridge, including the shadow.  Then I used some Cotton Candy stickles to make the snowflakes shine.

For the background paper I used some patterned paper from Recollections.  I thought the swirls reminded me of how it might look on the ice after the skating was done.  I ran a few layers of washi tape over the bottom (extra layers makes it less transparent) and used a tag I punched out to stamp the sentiment.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Winter Wonderland set.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Craftin' Desert Divas- Winter Linky Party
Simon Says Stamp Challenges- Wednesday Challenge, Ice Inspiration
Fantabulous Cricut- Use a sentiment
