These long holiday weekends always throw me off the following week, just doesn't seem like it should be Wednesday to me. But I am happy it is 1) it's time for a new challenge sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and 2) means the weekend is that much closer. :)
We have another FABULOUS sketch this week, not sure how Arlana does this but each week the sketches just keep getting more fun to play with. This week's is one more to add to my favorites.

Here is my card with this week's sketch and the cute and irresistible Skiing Mouse from Meljen's Designs.
My design paper is from a year ago and is by Blue Sky Design - Snowball Fight, I paired it with SU Perfect Plum and Tempting Turquoise, I colored this little guy with Copic and used a Sakura Gelly Clear pen for his ski poles, the ice cube was out lined with BG10 then covered with Crystal Effects and then I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on top while wet to get the wet shimmery effect, the ribbon and snowflake buttons are from my craft bin, paired with MS snowflake punch.
here is a close up pic of the ice cube
