Getting sporty at the Christmas Card Club

Hi all,
Well time once again for another card to add to my Christmas Card total.  Am I glad I joined this lovely band of ladies - I so wouldn't have made the Christmas cards I have if I hadn't have joined up.
So this time it was Sally's  turn to host the challenge and she chose:
WINTER OLYMPICS
So here is the card I made for this challenge:
As soon as I saw the challenge title I knew which image I was going to use.  I just love this Tilda and Edwin skating.
The image is coloured with my promarkers and flexmarkers and I have placed the image on to one of those wonderful die cuts from my good friend Susie Sugar.  If you keep an eye on her EBay shop you may see some popping up from time to time - grab them when you do - you know what they say....."Miss It - Miss Out!!" LOL
I have tried to make it look like they are on a skating rink by adding some "boards" in the background and some trees behind that using a Clarity Stamp.  I have chalked the boards and the ice rink.
The paper is from an Ooh La La CD called Joyeux Noel and whilst I think this one is now discontinued it is always worth popping in to the Ooh La La shop to see what's about.  Not only are there CD's but there are also a range of digital papers, digital images and some freebies too. 
The greeting inside, which is from Clarity Stamp,  is stamped on plain white card and then I have used a Martha Stewart PATP before sticking it down onto the same backing paper that appears on the front of the card. 
The snowflakes in the left hand panel (sorry about the shadow on the pic) are a Clarity Stamp which you can find here,
and the Christmas Trees on the right hand panel are half a stamp - also from Clarity and you can see that one here.
So there you go, my Winter Olympic Christmas Card.  Another one to add to my growing pile, oh it feels good to say that!! LOL
Challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Christmas Scene (I hope the ice rink is enough!!)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - Blue and White
