Timeless Tuesday #230 - Christmas in July

This week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #230 is Christmas in July (FTTC230), but with a catch!  It has to be SEMI-FLAT for mailing, so NO big bows or lumpy bumpy envelopes on this one!  Katie is our hostess, and she did say semi-flat, so there is a little room for extras - like bling!
I used my favorite winter set: Snow Day, and made a pink and white Christmasy delight! I stamped the skates in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in using the Lenten Rose and Cool Neutrals Copic Collections. 
Read all about the challenge and how to play HERE
I hope you will come play along!
Please be sure to check out what the rest of the team made!


Stamps: Snow Day (Flourishes)
Paper: Sweet Tooth (Poptone), Six by Six DP (MME)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: rhinestones (The Paper Studio), embossing folder (Cuttlebug), banner die (The {Stamps} of Life), Pink Chevron Grosgrain (Really Reasonable Ribbon), Scalloped Circle and Circle dies (Spellbinders)

Oh Judy, this one caught my eye right away! This is totally exactly like the pair of ice-skates I had growing up in Southern Michigan! Love everything about it, especially those pink pom-poms like I had! And oh yeah, we LOVED snow-days!!!
