Pink and White Christmas

Hello everyone, sorry that it has been a few days since I have posted, I am just about losing the will to live!!! I'm not sure that I am ever going to get my christmas cards finished. This card is a commission for my mum's friend to give to her granddaughter so I hope she likes it! It is also for four challenges; Penny Black Challenge 78 has a theme of christmas for girls, Creative Inspirations Challenge 38 has a theme of non traditional christmas colours, this week's Papertake has a theme of no red or green and finally, this week's Simon Says Stamp has a theme of let it snow.

Apologies for the bad photos, my camera just wasn't playing today! I have used my penny black hedgie shuffle stamp (again!) and it is coloured with distress inks. The paper is from DCWV and I have used my snowflake folder for the embsossing. My MS snowflake punch has made another outing and I used a cuttlebug die for the large snowflake.

For the inside I masked off part of the stamp and just stamped one hedgie for the area to write the greeting.

And I did the same thing, but a different hedgie, to decorate the envelope.

Card/Paper: Pink and white card, DCWV
Stamps: Penny Black - Hedgie Shuffle
Colouring: Distress inks - antique linen, walnut stain, vintage photo, worn lipstick, broken china, silver gel pen
Embellishments: jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, snowflake folder, snowflake die, MS snowflake punch, fiskars threading water punch, corner rounder punch, water brush

Thanks for looking x
