Ski Jump!

Although I have never been I would love to go skiing - just don't think I have a natural sense of balance to stay up for very long! I love this stamp from LOTV and thought it would be perfect for a more masculine Christmas card (although I did have to add a touch of ribbon on there!). This card is for Papertake Weekly's Sketch Challenge #85 (I flipped it so my sentiment didn't cover up too much of the image), Just Add Ink's Challenge #193 to add stars and Crafty Little Fairies Challenge to use red, green and gold. I used gold pearlescent card as I have very little gold glitter card (need to rectify that with a shopping trip this week me thinks!) but it looks a bit green-y in the photo but it is gold, honest!

And here's my card...


Stamps: Ski Jump, Christmas Circular Sentiments both from Lili of the Valley

Papers: Real Red, Whisper White, Dashing DSP (Retired) all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card, Gold Pearlescent from stash

Inks: Old Olive, Real Red both from Stampin' Up, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers

Accessories: Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Seeing Stars Dies from Papertrey Ink, Glistening Snow Writer

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
