Gliding By

Here is my card for the Wednesday Challenge over at Paper Pretties, which is a sketch challenge this week (my favorite!) PWC135. I used an old favorite of mine, Gliding By. We are big fans of ice skating here - my older girls just got their first pair of skates from Santa and my four year old just had her first successful ice skating lesson (with Mommy!) this past weekend. So fun.
Anyway, I colored Sophia using copics in blues and browns to match the designer paper. I modified the bottom element a bit to fit the sentiment. I love how the browns and blues work together on this card with a pop of red. I embossed the ovals and sponged the inside of it with light blue. The blue vertical panel behind the image is embossed with snowflakes.
TFL and have a great day!
