MFT Sketch Challenge - Joy

I had some fun with this week's MFT sketch.  Here's my take:
This is one talented bear.  The "Joy" sentiment was heat embossed in white and then extended with a VersaMark pen and more heat embossing to look like he wrote it on the ice with his skate.  The background was a scrap of Brusho water colored paper that I cut using MFT's Horizontal Snow Drifts to give the background a little movement.  I glitzed up the scarf and background with Wink of Stella and added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the skates and as drop accents on the card.  Do you see where I touched the skate before it was dry?  Every time, am I right?

 Here's the sketch from MFT Challenge 359:
Stamps:  MFT Polar Bear Pals, Gift Tag Greetings
Dies: MFT Horizontal Snow Drifts Cover Up, Four Way Chevron Cover Up, Stitched Square Frames, Stylish Snowflakes, Let it Snowflake Too
Ink/Paint: Memento Tuxedo Black, Brusho Turquoise, Ultra Marine, Purple
Copics: 0, C00,0,1,3, 5,B000,00,02,05,16,V01,04,06,09
Other: Sharpie marker - silver,  Nuvo Crystal Drops - Morning Dew, Wink of Stella - Clear

Thanks for coming over for a visit.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
