Think Pink for Christmas
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and so you will see a lot of blogs focusing on things related to that idea this month. I found a great color challenge#157 at Colour Q this week to use shades of pink with black, gray, and white, so I used that pallette to create my card. I found some wonderful paper in my stash from a retired line call Sweet and Sour DSP. I hung on to this glossy piece for just this kind of special occasion :) And, at Jingle Belles challenge they asked us to make a PINK CHRISTMAS card, and I could not wait to play along with that challenge. The Crafty Boots Challenge said to include THREE OF SOMETHING in your card, so I did three ornaments from the Keepsakes Ornaments stamp set.
I have really been having some fun making 3D ornaments out of this stamp set, but today I decided that it was time to just set it to paper, and do something flat, but fabulous. I blinged them up a little bit with lots of pearls for the girls. So, think pink, and remember to give yourself a little squeeze, and tell a friend to do it, too.
Have a great week. Come back again soon.
Great card, the pink works surprisingly well for a Christmas card, and lovely design.ReplyDelete
