Skating By - Crafty Creations Challenges

Hello and I'm so glad you stopped by today,

Challenge #320 has started over at Crafty Creations Challenges. The theme is ombre  and the sponsor is Lacy Sunshine. Lacy Sunshine has a great selection of images so please check them out.

The image I used is Bubbles Ice Skating and I just love her. I know that the winter sports are a little ways off but thought you might need to be cooled off a bit from the hot summer temperatures. LOL

Let me show a closer view of Bubbles and of that ombre background

That ombre background started out as a large paint chip, and it works great for an ombre background, doesn't it. I also used a silver mirror paper for some of the snowflakes and that circle behind Bubbles. I am so disappointed that those show as black and not the silver I was striving to have on the card. Guess I won't use that paper again on these types of projects.

Well I hope this card cooled you down a bit. 
The current Crafty Creations Challenges will end on August 2 at 10:00 p.m.
I hope to see a challenge submission with your name on it
