Ice Skate card from scraps

I sat down at my craft table yesterday wanting to make something, but no idea what.  I began to pick up some scraps to put away and realized they could work together pretty well.  Then I remembered a challenge this week to use the ice skate from the Winter Woodland cartridge.  I put it all together and Voila'!
The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 3/4".  The background paper is some I bought a couple of years ago on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby.  There was no lable.  The embossed piece was a preformed card that I didn't get the folder on straight when I was making a Christmas card.   So I cut it up to use.  The folder is the Cuttlebug snowflakes.  The silver cutout you will see again in the next post.  The paper is from Die Cuts With a View, Textures and Patterns stack.  I cut this in 3 sizes to determine what I wanted for my card for this weeks My Sheri Crafts challenge.  It's a beautiful cut from Paper Lace, "Lace 2" feature.  This one is cut at 4" with a few I-Rock gems added.  I used glitter paper for the skate (cut at 2 1/2"), but didn't get a picture that shows the sparkle.  I cut the skate a 2nd time from the silver paper and just used the blade and the bow.

The "Grace" stamp is  Stampabilities and actually says "God's Grace" but I used a marker to only ink up "Grace".  The skate is pop-dotted, the edges are inked with Royal Blue and the inside is finished out with a strip of the blue patterned paper on a strip of the silver paper (scraps of my scraps!)

I hope you like it, I was pleased with how it turned out.  And it cleaned up my table a little more! 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back in a little bit for the new My Sheri Crafts challenge.  You'll see some great projects from the team again this week!
