Stampin' For The Weekend - Sketch and Christmas in July

It's Christmas In July at Stampin' For The Weekend challenge this Friday - and we also have a great sketch to follow.

Our kind sponsor for this week is Simon Says Stamp.

Here is my little winter-wonderland creation:

The feeling of careless joy oozing from that little skater by Phindy always makes me smile. :)

Colouring is done with Copics and then I added sparkle with 3 different shades of fine glitter. Sparkle-yyy. Luvs it.

The papers are from DCWV Linen Closet stack, combined with fluffy glitter, frilly ribbon from my stash and snowflakes I found floating around in my "Christmas box". The sentiment is from (sadly now closing) Elzybells. I stamped it with white pigment ink and embossed with fine white embossing powder.
