skating away

Hi all!!
Still addicted to Christmas!
My little boy is in bed (with a carrot!!) so I am quickly blogging!
I was inspired by freshly made sketches sketch but I am now not sure how 'fresh' my card is!

The stamp and papers are Marianne designs free witha  magazine a while back.
I have coloured using my promarkers. I have tried to get the illusion of speed-illusion being the appropriate word as I don't know if I've captured it that well! I used my memento ink to stamp the image but dragged it back before I lifted it off the cardstock.
The shiny bit at the bottom is irridescent embossing powder from create and craft.
The 2 stars are from my stash.
I am entering him in the following challenges:
