Summery Roller Skating Themed Card

Well, this was a challenge! I was asked to make a themed card for a lady who judges roller skating competitions. After alot of head scratching I thankfully came across this digi stamp on the Letraset site. I gave the boot just a hint of colour using promarkers and the blender pen, competition skates are white you see, but it definitely needed a hint of colour. I set to layering up some gorgeous papers from the First Edition Summer Breeze pad, I love the flowery design and it's loaded with glittery accents. I made the rosette using loops of ribbon, I punched out a small circle just big enough to emboss the sentiment on. I then added another little ribbon, pearls and a star charm to finish off.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
