Riley's Playing Ice Hockey

I'm typing this up half asleep...seriously. My allergies kicked in overtime yesterday and totally wiped me out. It takes a few days for the meds to kick in--hopefully soon!

Anyway, when I ordered the large envelopes from SU! I ended up with the Extra Large ones, so I decided instead of sending them back, I'll just try to use them. So, this card is huge... 8.5"x 5.5" when folded.

The black piece in upper right is embossed with the Happy Birthday cuttlebug folder and then sponged lightly with white craft ink. Then the snow has lots of liquid applique so it's puffy like snow, and the ice (pond) is covered with dazzling diamonds cause ice sparkles when the sun hits it.

The blue layer is cuttelbugged with the spots and dots--kinda goes with the hockey pucks, and the sentiment stamp is one I got for free from Scrap N Win when my Sophia card won 2nd place! ☺ This is for a customer and I was told that it's for a girl who used to play on a boys' hockey team. So, I tried to add some girly things like the flowers and buttons, white dots, and stitched ribbon. Hope she likes it! Here's a close up of the snow/ice.

Stamps: Hockey Riley (Hanna Stamps); Park/Pond (Alota Rubber Stamps); Happy B-Day Ticket set (?)
