Winter Frolic Skater

Good morning everyone! The day has arrived!! I am so happy to share my card made for my first challenge as a Paper Playtime Queen!
Our challenge this week is to use Faces on our project. I am using the Snow Cuties 1 1/8 from our sponsor this week Peachy Keen Stamps.  I love these stamps! Making a winter card, I chose the girl skater on page 40 of Cricut Winter Frolic. The cut is 4 1/4 inches, a size that I thought was ok for the size of the face stamp after I slightly offset the placement of the cap. Using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, I embossed her pink jacket and cap.
The card is 6 1/2 X 5 white cardstock. Each of the pink side strips is cut 2 X 5 inches and embossed with the Snowflakes folder. The white mat is cut 5 X 5 inches and layered with the printed word paper which is cut 4 3/4 X 5. I added a couple of snowflakes also from Winter Frolic page 28 which are cut 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 inches.
Doesn't the little skater look happy! Maybe she is smiling at those pink snowflakes!!

Inside the card, I added more cuts from page 40 of Winter Frolic. Winter Wonderland is the phrase feature cut at 2 inches. The little girl skaters is the border feature cut at 1 1/4 inches. Martha Stewart Aspen Snowflake punch is used on the corners. 
Winter Folic is a great cartridge. Beacuse it was so close to Christmas when I bought it, I have made only a few cards with it. I am enjoying it and all the different features!

Hope you enjoy my card! I had so much fun making this one!
