Friday Sketchers Challenge #49

The Friday Sketchers Challenge from April 24 is to make a card using the following sketch...

and here is my card...

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the right.

Stamps: Tilda Skate, Thank You Kindly (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Momento, Copics
Paper: Old Olive, Pixie Pink, DCWV
Embellishments: Prima’s, Dew Drops, DMC Floss, charm from stash, Martha Stewart punch

This is the inside of the card. I am continuing to try to bring more to the center of the card.
I added the skates to the center of the flower. I actually considered making a charm out of them and hanging them from the flower, but went another way.

I used the skater as this week we have a special occasion. Friday is my daughter's Spring Show for her figure skating club. It is also her birthday (the big 12), so it will be a big day. I made this card to give to one of the parents in the skate club who has been such a huge help this year, just wanted to find a special way to say thanks.

I will be back tomorrow with the Blogger's Challenge card, so check back then.
