Marianne Skater

Wow, I've just found out that I have won a challenge! What a great feeling it was when I opened up the post notification from Sketch n Stash to find my name listed as winner this morning.

Well enough trumpet blowing, here is today's card.

It was a bit of a challenge to make this card. I started it last week when Di was over because I'd stumbled on the Marianne blog while blog surfing because a poorly wrist had curtailed my crafting somewhat. I considered the challenge of using 3 Marianne elements worth the effort. I don't have many Marianne dies or stamps then remembered this free stamp from a magazine last year as well as some free papers. I tried using a couple of other dies but decided on this design.
I used the following Marianne products:-
Free stamp- Winter fun
2 Free papers- Scandinavian Christmas
Creatable die set - LR0112 main card and snowflake

That makes 5 elements in all.

The ribbon was from last years Sainsbury's Christmas wrapping ribbon and the swirl was cut using a Sizzix thinlet die, Swirly Vine 657230, crystal from the stash.

Hope you like it, after all the effort I must enter it for the Marianne Winter / Christmas challenge

By now
