I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Hello again, and I'm back with another card to submit to Jingle Bells I'm Dreaming of a Pink Chrismas (and a Cure) challenge. Please do visit this site, read the rules, and perhaps you will be inspired to make a card featuring pink and play along. Here's my card:


- Pink cardbase was from a 6x6 pack of DCWV Shine paper acquired on my recent travels, and embossed with a Darice Angel EF, another recent acquisition. Thought this EF would be appropriate for the challenge subject. Used a sanding block very lightly along the raised surface of the emboss.

- MS border punched from a snippet remaining from the card base used in the 1st card I submitted in the previous post for the Jingle Bells challenge. Silver holly stickers from the sheet  that had the sentiment sticker.

- Rhinestone snowflake.

- Filigree stickers on the corner.

This was a quick & easy card to make. I hope I can find time to make a few more, as so many people I know, have had to deal with the dreadful disease. I hope you'll be able to find time to make a card & join in.

Since I have a small snippet on this card, I'm going over to the Snippet Playground for week #95, and let Parsnip check out this card to get his opinion on it. Miss is still off on her training trip, & Parsnip may need a little cuddle. C'mon along, and let's check out what is going on! As always, thanks for your visit & any comment you may feel like leaving. Hugs

Very pretty quick card, (but it doesn't look quick). The stickers look great with it. (I have a pile of stickers that are not being used... why do we collect so much ?) Enjoy your week, Shirleyx
