ABC Christmas Challenge - W is for...

It's time for a brand new ABC Christmas Challenge...and this time Samantha is our host. The theme of the challenge is:

'W is for Winter Sports'
(Think skiing, skating, sledging etc)

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:


The prize from Simon Says Stamp is a $15 voucher to spend in their wonderful store!


And from the Stamp Fairy...3 digital images of the winner's choice!

I went with skating for my winter sport...and chose this adorable Rachelle Anne Miller stamp from Stampavie called (rather appropriately) 'Skating'. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the ice using a Sakura Stardust pen. The glittery papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye. The snowflake is a Marianne Designs Creatables die coated with lots of Glamour Dust, and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border along the bottom of the image.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and some of the Stamp Fairy girls, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
