FREE Digital Image: Skating By

This is my card I did for this weeks challenge for TMITA. This cute little penguin is FREE so make sure you skate by and get it, because it will only be for free this week only!

The challenge was to use some reflective material of some kind on your card. When I first heard the challenge I knew I wanted to send some aluminum foil through a cuttlebug embossing folder! I must say it worked so wonderfully and I used a cheaper thinner kind so if you buy the really good stuff I imagine it works really well! So, all the shiny foil you see is just your everyday, cover you dish kind of foil from your kitchen. After I sent it through the embossing folder I used the spellbinder to cut my shape and then I also cut a piece to mat the large piece of pp and then also my sentiment which is heat embossed.

The wonderful thing about digital stamps, next to sizing them any size you want, is that you can flip the image; wa-la so now it's now going the other direction, which is what I did with mine.

I also wanted to use non-traditional winter paper and when I eyed these dots in my stash I knew I wanted to use it. There were green dots as well on the paper, which you can barely see now, but that is why I chose the green dotted ribbon and made her hat green as well. I used icicle stickles for the ice under her feet and pink for her hat. Then added my snowflakes...

So, if by chance you came by here first make sure you skate by TMITA and snag this fun wintry image!
