Ski Trip


My 11 year old son is going on a school ski trip this year, so I thought it would be fun to sneak this into his suitcase, with some extra spending money and treats!!
Image is a digi stamp from Bugaboo, and is coloured with Copics, and a sparkle pen on the poles and bindings. Image is matted with Nestabilities and paper pierced around the edges.
Patterned paper is MME, (embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and swiped with ink) and the snowy hills were cut freehand from DCWV glitter cardstock.
Sentiment is computer generated, cut and matted with Nestabilities, and also paper pierced around the edges.
Pearls are Queen & Co. , and ribbon is from my stash.
Challenges:
Catch the Bug - Birthday Bash sketch
Totally Stampalicious - Masculine Monday
Papertake Weekly - Ribbons and Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo (die cut/dry embossing/ribbon)
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Blue and Green
Raise The Bar - Oh to be a kid again

Fabulous card Margo, love your colour scheme. ........such a cute image. Your son will really appreciate this when he finds it, though probably not as much as the extra money and goodies (lol).
