Sparkling Snowflakes

There's another great inspiration photo on Inspired By All the Little Things!  I'm also entering this into another challenge that I just discovered at Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #128 Let It Snow.

What inspired me to make this card is the background, which looks embossed and the icy, cool blue of the skates.  Since I live in an area that rarely gets truly cold, I can just imagine a frozen pond with snow around the edges and people skating on it.  But that is what I thought of when I saw this and what led me to make this card.

Here's a close up showing the sparkle of the paper and the beautiful embossed background:

Thank you so very much for taking a look!!  I really appreciate it!

Dies:  Concord & 9th Merry; Impression Obsession snowflakes; My Favorite Things snowflake
