Patties Creations First Challenge

Welcome to Pattie's Creations first challenge. This is my first DT creation for Pattie's - the challenge - "Anything Goes".
Wow - free reign to do what you want.
I chose an image of Pattieboop ice-skating. I did a stair-step card and kept my colours girly and icy... The snow on the mountain caps is white flower soft, and I used feathers from a boa to "frame" the main image. The ice-skates was a freebie from the CDAC group (50 members) and the sentiment is part of a sentiment from Digistamps 4 Joy.
Pattieboop and the ice-skates are coloured in watercolour pencils, blended with spirits.

Here's a slightly different view of the card. Just to add a bit of "something", I used some offcuts of patterned paper.

Here you can see a close-up of the glitter on the dress and the flower soft of the mountain tops. You can just spot a glimpse of the feather.

The ice-skates with ribbon (freebie) was matted on a round scalloped die-cut. I stuck rhinestones around the edges. The border along the bottom "step" is also a die-cut, and I used silver rhinestones in the centres of the flower cut-outs. I tied a narrow chiffon ribbon on the bottom step and a broader ribbon on the middle step.

I was a little worried about the amount of bling etc I was using (and I DO LOVE my bling), but it didn't seem too much at all. Just perfect!
