Some more Inky Inspiration

(Second post for today so please scroll down for my Our Creative Corner Guest Designer card)

     It's inspiration day at the Inky Impressions Inspiration blog and I have a card for you using "Ice Skating Rachel".  I've colored her with Copic markers.  I cut her out and popped her up on pop dots.  The card is made with My Mind's Eye Portabello Road papers.  I was in the mood to play with embossing powder again so the edges of the large mat and two smaller ones are all edged in white embossing powder for a frosty look.  I created a little flower spray with some punched flowers, pearls, and a die cut flourish.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sassy Studio Designs--frosty winter colors
Totally Papercrafts--make your own flowers
CMC Copic Challenge--frosty ice cold projects

     Happy Saturday!
