Skating Beauty

I can't believe it! I have made a card for some challenges that I am not on the DT for! It's been far too long since I participated in some of my favorite challenge blogs.  I combined Mojo Monday (Tall and Skinny), My Craft Spot (Polka Dots), Die Cuttin' Divas (Winter Fun), and Exploring Cricut (Blue, Cricut Cuts, Pattern Paper) into this one card.  I used Winter Woodland for this beautiful image of an ice skater - and can I just say that I am SUPER excited for the Olympics!!!! Ice skating is one of my favorites to watch, so I made this card with that in mind.  Anyway, my pattern paper comes from an All Seasons Pack from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby), the skater's outfit is from DCWV Linen Shimmer/Glitter stack, 
and my ribbon is from American Crafts.  The two circles are cut from George.  
I love the blue color scheme to this card - perfect for winter! 
Thanks for checkin' in!!!
