For my card I used this lovely image from Art Impressions, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Tumbled Glass DI. I made the backgrounds using the emboss resist technique, stamping a Hero Arts Flourish which I thought resembled the swirls left by skates in the ice and a Penny Black Design Spotter stamp, which looks like snow ,, with Versamark, sprinkling with white embossing powder, heating and then swirling distress inks over the top. I then used a paper distresser on all the edges. I used oodles of Star Dust Stickles and Crystal glitter on the image and punched snowflakes. The sentiment is from hero Arts

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see them :-)
