More Challenge Fun . . .

Good Evening All!  

Here's another challenge I've been wanting to get involved in!  It's the challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenges.  This is their third challenge and they're now switching to a weekly format!  How much fun is that going to be!!  Today's challenge is to create a Christmas Card or Project.

(click on image to enlarge)
I have used Pattie's digi image called "Pattieboop's Ice Skates".    This particular image is actually one of Pattie's Freebies.  I've used the SKETCH for this week's challenge over on Stamp Something.  I really thought this layout would showcase Patti's ice skates perfectly and I'm very happy with the outcome! 

The recipe for this creation is as follows:
Papers: Basic Black, Whisper White, Graphic45 (Christmas Past), American Traditional Designs (Snowflake Sky)
Image: Pattie's Creations
Accessories: Nestabilities classic circles, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Kaiser half pearls, glue pen, Glamour Dust 

This was such a wonderful layout and I'm sure I will be using it again very soon!  I thought you  might like a closer look at the sparkle on the skate ribbons.  

Here are other challenges this creation qualifies for:
Craft Your Passion - Recipe (Two of Anything) - two designer papers
The Crafty Calendar Challenge - Winter Snowflakes
Paper Sundaes - Let It Snow
Raise The Bar - Curves

Thanks for stopping by ... hope to see you again tomorrow for two of my favorite challenges.  Enjoy your evening!  It's nearly time for Pittsburgh Steeler football ... gotta go!

  6. Darlene - I'm so happy that you were able to use Pattieboop's ice skates for other challenges too. It helps for getting her images out there!
    I like this sketch, I'm all for symmetry on a creation. It's perfect in my eyes, not overly decorated and it brings your eyes right to the image.
    Well done!
