Ice Skating Card

Here's a card I've made for my friends little girl, Molly.  She's 11 tomorrow and loves ice skating.

As you can see it's a spinner card.  I made it using the following materials:

A4 White card, scored in 1/2 with an apperture cut out.
12x12 Blue Patterned Paper
Printed Image
Blue Mirror Card
Silver Peel Offs
Diamond and Blue Stickles
Adhesive Gems
Blue Ribbon
Double Sided Sticky Tape
3D foam

I really hope she likes it!

Big thank you to Nikki Smith who gave me some help making a spinner card.  Didn't follow the steps exactly, but it definitely helped!

Look forward to hearing what you think of it, so please leave a comment.

Thanks again,

Lisa xx
