Challenged! - Tempus Fugit

I wanted to make a New Year/ Thanks for my presents card and The Shabby Tearoom Time Flies challenge and photo gave me some ideas. The ice skater is a very old um stamp and I gave her a big watch to hold (old Craft Stamper Magazine freebie) and gave the watch wings (Non-sequitur) . I used the colours pink and green , inspired by the Shabby Tearoom photo and added an oval of silver card for the skater’s ice.

On Sunday I set myself the challenge of using all the products in my  new Docrafts Goody Bag. I’ve used 3 out of the 11 on this card – pink check paper, butterfly (edged in green) and ribbon. I stamped the ribbon with Tempus Fugit – also from the Craft Stamper freebie.
Deep and meaningful comment - The skater represents me skating from winter towards spring, while trying to stop time flying away!!!
As well as the Shabby Tea Room challenge, I’d like to enter this for:
