A pink Christmas

Hello lovely people,

This weekend is a fairly quiet one at home for me so I have been doing a spot of Christmas shopping and making some more Christmas cards.  The one I have to share with you today is a simple design that I can make several of fairly quickly and easily.

I recently bought some fantastic spotty card from Anna Marie Designs in 12 gorgeous colours but no surprises which colour I reached for first!

Yes, it's James bear again but he is showing his feminine side in pink today!  I coloured him a little paler than previously and added Stardust Stickles to the snowflakes and the snow on the ground.

There are some gorgeous snowflake border dies out there but I don't have any of them so I used my favourite snowflake die set to make my own!
I also sponged some white acrylic paint round the edge of the DP to add to the snowy feel and love how it turned out.

Card recipe;
Dies: Impression Obsession small snowflake set

Copic colours;
James bear: E40/41/42
Scarf / hat: R81/83/85

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1.  LOTV (pink and white)
2.  As You Like It (spots or stripes - spots for me - I just think they look super stylish!)
3.  A Gem of a Challenge (sparkles)

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, thanks for visiting me and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx

Donna Ellis said...

too TOO cute, Kat! This is adorable! Love your pretty stitching and the pretty layers behind your sweetly colored little winter bear! My favorite parts are the partial snowflake border - GREAT IDEA - the the sweet side-ways sentiment! another wonderful way of saying the same thing, but repeated in the different fonts. Beautiful card, as always, and I'm pinning it! hugs, de
