CCT School or Sports theme and GDT call

Hello! It's time for our next challenge at Cute Card Thursday, this time we would like you to take inspiration from school, or sports.  Of course, this is the time of year when many schools hold their Summer sports days, but, I went for a Winter sport for my card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps, stop by the blog to read about it and for inspiration from the DT.  And, yes we are very thin on the ground and just haven't had time to put a proper DT call out.  However, if you are interested in joining us as a guest for the next month, or so, then please add GDT after your name when linking your entry to the challenge.

Back to my card, I have stamped skiing Don and used stamps from the Don and Daisy Winter scenery set in the background.  Coloured with my Copic pens and added the flakes and fine glitter for snowy effects, as well as a clear glaze over his goggles. Here is my card:

I have used a piece of background paper from one of the Marianne Design Christmas packs, a slightly awkward colour to work with but the old Almost Amethyst card from SU! is a good match!  I made more of the pearly poinsettia flowers with my little pots of pearl paint then decorated with liquid pearls, and more die cut bits and pieces.  Sorry no list of my MD dies today as I am pushed for time .. .. but I am sure you will be able to find them in the catalogue as they are all old dies that have been out for a while now.

I hope you will come and join us, and maybe think about being our GDT for the summer?
