Bugaboo's Christmas in July - Day 4

The challenge for day 4 is a recipe challenge: kraft, snowflakes and embossing. For this card I chose to play with the ice skating Sunbonnet image. I colored her with Promarkers and gave her some glitter on the brim of her bonnet. For the sky, I used blue paint and a snowflake stamp from Fiskars. I heat embossed with white EP. The houses are made with stamps from Panduro. I stamped onto kraft and used a white gel pen for the snow. The ice is made of foil, I got it from my sister who's a hairdresser, she uses this type when doing highlights. She's also given me some green and pink foil to play with. They come in very practical small rolls.
I added seam binding ribbon with an ice skate metal charm, as well as letter stickers for the sentiment.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Catch The Bug - Recipe (Day 4)
2) Passion For Promarkers Challenge - Christmas In July
3) Card Mania - How charming
4) Sparkle N Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking
5) Glitter n Sparkle - #93 Anything Goes
6) Sparkles Forum Christmas - A Winters Scene

What a great idea to use the highlights foil. I know just the type that you mean...Brilliant idea!

You have been so dedicated to this challenge. I hope you win some lovely prizes!!!

The houses on kraft look great and I like the contrast between the foil, the kraft and the DP.

This is precious. It has so much dimension with the sky, buildings, snow, ice, skater and ribbon. It is more a work of art than a card. Priceless! Donna
