Birthday Card for my Skating Friend

Hello!
It's been some time since I updated!  I have made a few cards but otherwise have taken a bit of a

paper crafting break after completing the big Halloween album for my grandchildren.  I am so happy to
report that they received the album and are very happy with it!  I understand that Aubrey, my 2 1/2 year old grand daughter, did not like the spider pages!  She said "I don't like spiders!" every time she came to a page with spiders or spider webs.  Aubrey, you'll be happy to know your Aunt Kim and your Grandpa BOTH share that sentiment! 
Here is a card for my dear friend, Sharon, who is an ice skater.  I hope she enjoyed her birthday last Friday!
I used the WInter Woodlawn cartridge for the ice skater, Elegant Cakes cartridge for the "Celebrate" (with the blackout feature used for the black background), and the Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder for the swirls on the front of the card.  I can not remember which cartridge I used for the sentiment inside the card.  I added a bit of silver ribbon to the front to represent that icy look. I used some cut up foam tape to give the skater a bit of dimension and pop her up from the "ice" a little bit.

Let me know what you think!  Thanks for looking!
Trying to show that she is raised up a bit!
