Don't break a leg!

     I love to skate, but with RA and my achy joints, sometimes it doesn't always love me. Today i made a card using another Kenny K image called "Skate Chick". I colored her with my copic markers. I added a lot of metal "gears and spinner" from the Tim Holtz collection.  Used a die to cut out the cork board gear and distressed it with tea dye distress ink. I found this burlap looking ribbon at Joann Fabrics.  The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps along with the ticket die to cut it out.  I heat embossed along the edges of the card with gold embossing powder. Anyway, it was fun to make.
