I've got a few more thank you cards for Christmas gifts to make and this one was inspired by the BBTB2 challenge this week to use the skate from Winter Woodland on a project. I had to go with the skate from CM Cheerful Seasons, however, as my sons felt the Winter Woodland skate (which has the laces tied in a bow) looked too "girly" for their thank yous. Whatever! Since I still used some pink, I'm not sure they will be entirely happy with the finished product anyway, but I liked it!
Edited to add: the verdict was mixed from the boys this morning, who announced the card was very pretty, but had too much pink. I think they had more of a black and gray hockey skate look in mind! It was comical!
