Christmas Skate

But it is NOT a Christmas card!


Hi All! It is All Dressed Up challenge time! Join us over on the All Dressed Up Facebook page for Januarys FB Challenge. This month the theme is Make It Cute. I chose to use Christmas Skate . How will you “Keep it Cute” and what stamp will you use?? Drop me a note and let me know. Now, on with the Show and Tell…


I chose her dress color first then paired it with the paper! This happens more often than not, because when I look at an image I generally have an idea of what color palette I want. Lucky for me I have loads of paper. 🙃🤪


Since there was gold in the patterned paper I used that as my secondary color. I used this gold paper from MFT, I just got it and its really nice.


The snowfall drops are used for the snow, the Yellow Bird on the ear muffs and pom-poms.
