Skiddy Skates

Hello lovely peeps, hope you are well.

Here's my second November card for LOTV (in the nick of time!!)

This is 'Skiddy Skates'. He's normally holding a bunch of holly but I've cut around that bit and given him a sign to hold instead. The papers are from the 'Winter Wishes' 8x8 paper pad and the greeting is from the 'Christmas Wishes' clear stamp set. I've picked a suitably ambiguous greeting so this card would do for a winter birthday or Christmas.

I've coloured him in with my Graph'It markers (and a couple of Le Plumes for the blue)
Hat, scarf & gloves: B711, B715
Jumper: 3210, 9403, 9404
Trousers: 9501, 9502, 9503
Skates: 9401, 9402, 9404, 9405
Skin: 4150

The sign is just a strip and rectangle of white card with wiggly lines drawn around the edges. I cut a line between his thumb and fingers to slot the handle into before glueing his arm down. The trees are cut from another 'Winter Wishes' paper using a Sizzix die and edged with Antique Linen DI.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
