Pink Christmas Card

This card is for Lily of the Valley's Pretty in Pink challenge.

Pink is not my colour, so this was a bit challenging for me.  When I bought this stamp I pictured it in shades of blue...

I die cut the pass-partout oval, then stamped and coloured the girl in multiple shades of pink, using gamsol to smooth out the pencil crayons.  I added some liquid applique (fake snow) to the muff, pompoms and ground and waited several hours for that to dry so I could heat emboss it and puff it out.

In the meantime, I punched out the snowflakes from cardstock and flower petals from tissue paper, and put the flowers together using gold brads.

Finally I glued the picture to the back of the cardstock and added the accents, fluffing the flowers so they'd look more 3 dimensional.

I don't normally think of pink for Christmas, but you might be onto something. It's cute!

That's a beautiful card, very unusual for Christmas. Thanks for entering our 'Pretty in Pink' challenge, good luck!

Very pretty in pink, but I can't wait to see it in blue!
