Power & Spark for November - Think Pink!

 


 Tosha Leyendekker has challenge us to Think Pink for this month's challenge.  Here are her words. 
“I love vintage, so I often think of white and pink for Christmas décor. I thought it would be fun to feature pink on a Christmas Card. So, for this month’s challenge, let’s THINK PINK and make it a Pink Christmas.”

I just got some new stamps set from Power Poppy and I also treated myself to a new pack of designer paper.  I was inspired by the set called Holly Golightly and Recollections Christmas/Noel paper pack.  
Here is my card.  
This is a 6X6 card because I loved the paper and want to use all of it.  The silvery snowflakes are so shiny and there are white ones too.  I went with a silver and pink card.  After stamping the holly, with versamark and embossing with silver powder, I colored them with Copic R83, R85, R56.  Then fussy cut out two of the holly sprays.  I did the same with the tag, but sponged that with Distress ink in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.


I used a newer die from Simon Says called Believe.  I cut a vellum background for that and the word was die cut in silver.  The vellum is colored from the back with the Copic R 85. 

Card stock is Gina K Designs in Dusty Rose and I added a bit of pink gingham ribbon to the card too. 
the sentiment on the tag is from Simple Joys stamp set. 


I will need to make an envelope for this special size.  




I will enter this card in the Power & Spark Challenge for November

Thanks for your comments, They really brighten my day!

  6. SMILE!!! I bought the same paper pack. It caught my eye in the 12X12 but too pricy but I was thrilled to find it 6x6. Now I just need to use it. I have a tendency to hoard beautiful papers like they do some good in my paper drawer. Absolutely fabulous card. Love the embossing and the holly sprays and the ribbon is perfect.
