IceSkates Tag Sketch Xmas Card

Created this Christmas card with an Ice Skates/Snowflakes theme. Used BugABoo digi, Ice Skates Tag. Used Wink of Stella clear on Ice Skates. Used a sketch which you can see below. Stamped on digi Tag the sentiment with a soft blue ink to complement the blues & inked the edges of the digi Tag.
