Yet another Christmas card stash of festive cards is already overflowing! :0)
I've used another of the lovely stamps I got for my birthday...this was from Uma, and is called 'Skating' (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie). I made this card about a week ago...and followed the sketch from the Stampavie Challenge...but forgot to blog it before the challenge closed! lol Nevermind, I've found some other challenges it fits...but there's quite a few so I'll list them at the end. The glittery papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' stack by My Mind's Eye, the snowflake was cut using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Cyrstal' die, which I covered with Glamour was a bit big, so I chopped off the ends! lol I added some sparkle to the 'ice' on the image with a Sakura Stardust pen, then cut it out using one of my deckled rectangle Nesties, and the sentiment stamp is by Cuddly Buddly.

Challenges for this card:
