Pink & Blue Christmas

Firstly, apologies for the terrible photo - I had to take the pic this morning because it's a card that my friend asked for and I met up with her today. The light in my craft room at this time of year is bad in general, but especially early in the morning, so I had to use flash to get anything at all!

The image is a digi stamp from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers with glamour dust for sparkle and some ivory flower soft on the hat bobble. The papers are MME with some sparkly blue and pink cardstock from my stash. The big snowflake was cut with the Cuttlebug icicle die, with a flat back pearl centre. The small snowflakes were punched, with some blue stickles and tiny blue gem centres. The sentiment is computer generated with some sakura clear glitter pen added to the lettering - I was quite happy with this card until I added the sentiment, I think I ruined it but didn't have time to come up with anything else!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
  • Stamp With Fun - lovely sketch
  • Paperplay - Christmas without red or green
  • Pink Elephant - your favourite Christmas colour combo (I'm loving pink & blue for Christmas at the moment - it's the MME papers I think!)
