CCAYR mid-July Christmas Belles DT post

Sorry this is a day late, but we were away this weekend, and I didn't have a chance to schedule a post before-hand or do one while away.  So, without any further ado, here is my card for mid-July:

 
The ice skate is a Silhouette cut file that I thought would be cute paired with this retired Bugaboo image. I used the offset tool to make the outline around the skate itself to make it into a card.  My favorite brown distress ink, Frayed Burlap, was what I used to ink around the edges of the skate, the laces, and the die cut image.  Kraft card stock was used for the card base and the scalloped mat for the image.  Since I had used brown distress ink, I decided to go for a monochromatic look and colored the scarf brown too.
