FIFTH week of Christmas

For the FIFTH week of Christmas Linda gave to me...
a cool “spotlight” on ice skates:
I have wanted to make this card for some time. I just LOVE how the rhinestones create the "spotlight" effect on the ice skates. Of course, in Florida we don't ice skate as much as other states, but stamps like this just reminds me of the Christmas holidays, movies, etc. This is a very simple, but sharp card to share with friends and family.
Stamps:  Winter Memories (#127937 Clear / #127934 Wood)
Paper: Baja Breeze (#111352) (5-1/2” x 11" base and 3/4" x 4" strip layer) , Very Vanilla (#101650) (4" x 5-1/4")
Ink: Black StazOn (#101406)
Extras: Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#119246), Paper Piercing Tool (#126189), Pierce Mat (#126199), 5/8” Crochet Trim (9”), (#118481), Old Olive Marker (#100079), Real Red Marker (#100052), 1-3/4” Scallop Circle Punch (#119854), Snail Adhesive (#104332)

Contact me if you are interested in full instructions for this project.
Happy Stamping!
p.s. - I know we have missed a few of the weeks of Christmas, but I will try to catch up with those projects soon. Life threw us a curve ball and my husband's Mom had a really bad fall that caused a serious closed head injury that the doctors are closely monitoring. So - crafting and blogging have been placed on the "back burner" for a while. All of your prayers have been greatly appreciated. Thank you for understanding.
