Pink Christmas

Last night I decided to do the Mojo Monday sketch and incorporated a few other challenges into it and ended up with this Pink Christmas Card.

The Pretty In Pink Paper looked so pretty with the Rose Red paper (which is supposed to have a pink tone to it, but for some reason in the picture appears to be Red). I dug through my ribbon and found this wonderful striped ribbon from American Crafts that matched the colors perfectly. I added pink rhinestones to the center of the snowflakes as well as the centers of the poinsettias and the snowflake on the main image. I can't believe I actually used an image that didn't require any coloring (quite a rarity for me lately), but it sure made for a nice and quick card.

This card is for the following challenges:
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in October
Little Paper Shop - Christmas Card - no red or green
Cute Daisy May - Pink Christmas
Creative Card Crew - Celebration
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - A card for a girl/woman in your life with the color pink
Three Clovers - Think Pink
Secret Crafter - Celebration
Gingersnap Creations - Use Bling
