Pink Christmas


I know pink isn't a traditional Christmas color, but I made this card for the Jingle Belles Pink Christmas card challenge in honor of breast cancer awareness month. The ornaments were done with SU! stamps and punches and embossed with silver ep. I know the color cast makes the larger ornament appear pink, but it's silver! I added some pink gems from Pizzazz Aplenty to each ornament and also to the MB frostyville border. The ornaments were "hung" with silver stickers and it's all tied up with some SU! silver metallic ribbon. The dsp was cut randomly into "rays" and adhered to a white base.

I'm also entering this into the ScrapyLand #3 "anything goes" challenge with the Memory Box die cut border.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day!
