Pretty Ice Skater

 Morning my crafting friends, hope this finds you all well? Lovely weather for Ducks we are having (Sorry Ang no pun honest!).

I have made todays card for a friends birthday that was yesterday, she loved it of course!

I tried to keep the colours of the card in with the colours in the image so that it hopefully, did not look to much. I did not start off with the intention of framing the image with the flowers but it ended up with it!

I started off with a sheet of Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card -Gold and folded it in half to form my base card.
On top of this I matted some Blue card from Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card-Pastels that I had first run through the Anna Griffin Embossing Folder-Pirouette.

I printed the image from Crafters Companion Paintbox Poppets Collection onto some Matt Photo Paper and put this to one side.

I had some Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lattice Swirls in Yellow card in my stock so I placed these on the top and bottom of my card, using Foam Pads I attached the image in the center of these as seen.

Using bits of card that I had from Crafters Companion Centura Pearl card-Pastels I die cut several flowers from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die-lites Blossoms One, Two, Three and Four, stuck a few together, added a gem from Create and Craft Iridescent Gems in the center of those that needed it and attached them round the edge of the image.

 On a piece of Centura card I stamped my senitment from Creative Expressions Un-mounted Stamps-Treasured Memories with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Victorian Velvet, inking through the die with Victorian Velvet then heat embossed it using Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Pearl Lustre. I then die cut with Spellbinders Shapeabilities Back to Basics Tags and attached this to the card with Pinflare Silicone Glue so it formed a slight arch. I placed this in the top right corner.

There you have the finished card, I hope you like it?

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
