Christmas in Pink ...

Hi Everybody,

Just because it is a Christmas Card doesn't mean it has to be in traditional colours.

For this one I have used a pretty shade of pink card from  Papermill Direct   and added in a large white Poinsettia

The flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts and I have sprinkled them with some pink glitter strands

The dies are  Spellbinders Grate Effect  for the background and I have simply glued it flat to a piece of white card. Then layered them onto the pink base card.

The oval in pink is the Victorian Bow  and I have added hat with foam tape.  The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed onto parchment and the strimmed to fit the front.

Each side of it has been dressed with Diamanté strips from Want2Scrap

The Flourish Trim  is a really useful small die and I have cut it twice and added to each side of the parchment strip.

So I wonder who will get this card from the Griffiths household at Christmas !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
