Ski Jump- A Christmas Card for Boys

Hi Everyone.
Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful start for the week.
It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, 
so we get an extra day off.

Today, I have a card to share with you ~
A Christmas card for boys.

I used CLP October sketch for my layout.
The image is LOTV Ski Jump,
and the sentiment is also from LOTV.




I stamped the image with StazOn ink and 
water colored it with TH Distress Inks.
I added some liquid pearls, glitters,
and Flowersoft snow.


The card measures 5.5" x 5.5". 
DPs are Memory Box and Magnolia.
Snowflake wreath die is Memory Box.
The poinsettia is handmade using Magnolia die cuts.
I cut out the little pom poms from pom pom ribbon
and used them to decorate the top edge.


 Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week!

Hugs,
Katie
