Pretty in pink
The new challenge starting today at Creative Moments has an optional theme of 'Pretty in pink', now I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of pink, especially for Christmas cards, but my Granddaughters are - particularly the younger two-, so here's the card I made for one of them (not sure which one yet!). I made a shaker card in the shape of a snowglobe, I diecut the circles f'rom pink DP and snowy acetate. for the globe and hand cut the card base. The cute image is courtesy of Polkadoodles one of our lovely sponsors this fortnight, it's Candy Cane Elf, available here. I've used copics to colour and paper-pieced her hat. I stuck it all together...then spent ages carefully prizing it apart again...I forgot the snowflake sequins for the shaker element...what a donut! If I had a brain I'd be dangerous ;), fortunately managed to make a big enough gap to insert the snowflakes one by one without damaging the card! I embellished it with a few die cut snowflakes and added a stamped sentiment.
We have two fantastic sponsors this challenge, the other one is Rick St Dennis, please visit the main challenge blog for full details of sponsors and prizes and to view the lovely creations of my talented teamies, and of course to add your own fabulous entries :))
