Maggie Card with Sports Theme

The only Magnolia image I have that has anything to do with sports is this ice skating one! The next closest would be "snow ball throwing"! But ice skating really is a sport so that's what I went with.


This is just a "thinking of you"-type of card so I left it blank inside to write a personal note to someone. I will probably add a stamped Bible verse on the left inside too. This card was kind of fun to make! I used a piece of metalic-coated paper that I took home from work one day. It came in the mail as a brochure for a tool company and it looks like stainless steel. But that did make it a little hard to photograph...it kept picking up the colors in my house! Now that I'm this far with posting this I'm thinking I should have colored Edwin's skates black or gray. Hmmmm. Oh, well.
Items used:
Cardstock and special paper - from my stash
Magnolia stamped image* - "Tilda & Edwin on Ice"-
(colored with colored pencils)
StampingScrappingDesign stamps*: "Anglaise Lace"

The flower is one that Karen Stark made for me,
the little roses are from my stash
as are the shiney pearls and buttons.
