Little skater

 I coloured this beautiful little stamp from All Dressed Up before Christmas and have just made her into a card.  The image is Little Skater and I've sketched a skate reflection into the ice underneath her foot.  She's coloured with ProMarkers, cut out with a Spellbinders die and some glitter added to enhance the ice effect.  I've also used a white gel pen to hightlight her skates, earmuffs and bow.

The papers are from Lili of the Valley Frosty Christmas and Lili of the Valley/NitWits Petal Fresh.  The strip of ribbon, white with silver edging was purchased from Lili of the Valley a while ago.  The sentiment is also from Lili of the Valley one from a Sentiments Art Pad which I've coloured with a blue ProMarker.

To make it look like she was skating in a winter wonderland I've added some embellishments to look like tree branches.  These are some clear beaded crystal leaves and some pearl & crystal branches from the Ribbon Girl.

Final touches to the card are some tiny silver star beads and some blue and white pearlised self adhesive gems.

Here's hoping the snow stays away and we don't end up with a winter wonderland ourselves
Happy Boxing Day :)
