Warm Wishes

Wishful thinking!!  We're finally above ZERO here in the D so I just had to make a winter card to celebrate our record cold and soon-to-be record snowfall.


The inspiration for this card was this sketch from Cardabilities!  I used a new die I got for Christmas, had braided and dyed twine, and some scraps to create this.  Super happy with how it turned out!


You can't really see it but the skates are shimmery and so is the "warm wishes" banner.

I'm linking this card to a bunch of challenges and linky parties this week!



Thanks so much for looking.  I'm excited to be back to crafting and looking forward to a creative 2014.  Laters!

  8. Wowm this card stirs memories of all the hours I spent at ice rinks with one of my daughters who who was passionate about ice skating Lisa ......we don't really experience cold such as you've been having 'over the pond'.

    The ice skates look wonderful over the dark background and I love the laces and your twine embellishment. Glittering the ice skates makes me think of the sheen on ice. A very stunning card.

    Good luck in our extended challenge. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
