IB100 WIshing You A Pink Christmas


Happy Thursday---again, Happy Thanksgiving if you're in the states!  It's time for the 100th Inspired Challenge, and I went pretty simple with my card..in fact, I already had this frame diecut and in my Blushing Bride folder, so it was just a matter of embellishments!


And here is Laurel's photo prompt:


I stamped the gift on Blushing Bride cardstock with Soft Suede ink; I experimented with a couple of different ways to add some glitz to the image and finally, I just added a piece of Blushing Bride Glimmer paper to the center:


I backed the frame with some retired Blushing Bride striped DSP and for a final embellishment, a glimmer snowflake and brown pearl:


The white embossed background was in my stash; apparently a generous stamping friend made some and sent them to me...several years ago, so I don't remember who (maybe Carol L?) so I put it on a Crumb Cake card base and adhered it all together! Thanks for popping in today!

I think pink for Christmas is a fun retro look!  Apparently it's a popular theme at Longwood as well; these are displays in their gift shop:



And aren't these mugs sweet?


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I do love the Pink you have been showing on your Christmas Cards...When I was 12 my mother went on a pink binge...and yes a Pink Tabletop tree with pink balls...I see them in stores now...Pink Canisters in the kitchen. Ha!...And Kampin’ Karen I love Pink and Brown. I once had a brown / Pink Sailor dress...so loved it...ok talking about Retro...and just slipped right down that lane. Thanks for the Memories.
