I love the skates I used on this card. Skating makes me happy but it's been many moons since I have skated, I may need to change that. I selected the red patterned paper as it reminded me of a Nordic sweater and highlighted the bit of blue in the paper as my accent color. I love red and light blue together.
Here is a close up of the skates to try to show the shine of the shimmer paper I used. I had just enough to get these two skates out of my scrap, it was meant to be!
