Pink Christmas

Thursday, September 24, 2009

I decided to go outside the traditional norm for Christmas and use pink and brown for a Christmas card. What do you think? Too weird? Interestingly enough, it did get Devin's nod of approval, which doesn't necessarily happen all that often.

I started with this week's sweet Sunday sketch at Karen's blog. The challenge at OCC is to use pink, hot pink chocolate, and white. 2RedBananas challenge for the week is easy as 1-2-3. One piece of ribbon, 2 stamped images, and 3 gems. The challenge at Stamp Something is to use your favorite colors or paper. Well, pink is definitely my favorite color and I love it paired with brown.
***Supplies***
Patterned paper: CTMH More to Adore
Stamps: CTMH Vintage Christmas
Other: CTMH adhesive pearls, ribbon from my stash, Cuttlebug


Well, it's one day closer to the weekend. Have a fantastic Thursday. And thanks for the congratulations on my exam. I am still on cloud 9.

Personally, I like to find "non traditional" colored cards in my mailbox at Christmastime...they do stand out :-). These colors worked well for a VERY pretty card.
