Christmas Card #2 - 2013...

I had recently purchased several dies from the Tim Holtz Christmas Collection - 2013 and couldn't wait to play with them.,... and here is the Ice Skates Die... isn't is GORGEOUS?? hee hee.. I suspect I will get many years of enjoyment and use from them.. they are a Classic!!

The background mat is once again a faux lettepress technique..I really like the texture it gives to a card....

A little white acrylic paint around the edges and Voila..we'll call it done!!
