Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Monday morning brings a new challenge from the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog! This week our challenge was to make a white Christmas card. I like to use lots of color, so this challenge was a great way for me to step outside my comfort zone and try something new. After all, that's the point of a challenge right?!

Here's what I came up with... I used this sketch by Maria for my layout...
These little ice skating cuties are by Rachelle Anne Miller. I colored them in with some neutral colored Copic markers and then added Stickles to the ice skating rink for some sparkle.
To finish it off I added some white organdy ribbon and a sentiment, both by Stampin Up. I used Sahara Sand ink for the sentiment and then punched it with my scallop circle.

There were lots of cute entries for our "freebie" challenge last week, but this card by Lisa caught my eye. Thanks to all of you who play along with us each week! I really love to see what you all do!

Now get stampin...
