Vintage Skate

Skating is a good theme for today.  That's because everything was covered with ice when we got up this morning.  And under the ice was more snow.  The sun was out and the noise from the ice melting off the trees and dripping on the ice covered ground made it sound like it was raining.   I had shoveled about half of the drive when a neighbor pulled up with a plow on his truck and finished the rest for me.  Thank you, Big Mike!!

This card is for my niece's birthday and features a vintage ice skate digi image by Pattie Gomez.  You can find her wonderful images here on etsy.  The background stamping on the scalloped oval and the sentiment are CTMH stamps.  DP was a freebie in a recent magazine and embossed with a snowflake EF.  I laced the skate with some baker's twine and added a few sparkles. 

And now I'm entering it in these challenges:
