It's time for another Shabby Tea Room Challenge!
I am the guest designer for this month! And, I am
having so much fun!:-)
Just look at this beautiful sweet wintery scene with
the ice skate for the inspiration photo!
It brings back wonderful memories of skating when
I was young. We used to walk down to the park and
go skating. We also had a neighbor who had an ice
skating rink. I was sweet on one of the neighbor boys
and he taught me how to skate backwards. We had fun
sitting by the fire drinking hot chocolate!:-)
Anyways, one is to follow the colors in the photo and
choose three items on this TIC TAC TOE board! How
fun is that??!! Three in a row...up, down, or
diagonally. Here is the board...
It was time consuming making this card, but well
worth it! I fussy cut the greenery. It's difficult to
tell, but I also snipped the edges and added distress
ink. I embossed the skate blades, pine cones,
greenery, and holly leaves. A piece of vellum and
doily was added behind the skates. I wanted to give
the skates some dimension, so I added the tiny vintage
brads. I do love those brads! I must order more...lol!
A sweet tag and seam binding from Paper Sweeties!
Trim, pearls, and gems to finish off the card.
I thank you so much for dropping by today! Go on
over to the Shabby Tea Room to join in on the fun!
