Pink Christmas! ♥

Hello and good morning crafty peeps! I have a card I want to share with you that I've made for a most important challenge: JINGLE BELLES! In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Lauren and Stephanie will donate $2 each for every Christmas card entered. The catch? Your new card has to have some notable pink on it!

The "Pink Christmas" prompt will run at JINGLE BELLES from 12am on Friday, October 10th to 6pm on Wednesday, October 22nd; as in previous years, Stephanie and Lauren pledge to donate $4 per linked-up card to The Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The only requirement is that all link-ups be NEW holiday cards with some noticeable pink on them... so in other words, not just Rudolph's NOSE, lol!

Participants may use sketches, combine challenges, and include any other colors in addition to pink; you can showcase however many cards you'd like in one post, don't worry, we'll still count every single one of them towards the total!

Thank you very much for your support!

Can't say it any better than that! Ok, so on to my card:

 Here is the inside:

I die cut three of the poinsettia backgrounds (2 vanilla cs, 1 green scrap dp), and 2 of the outlines in the same pink background paper). After gluing the outlines on the backgrounds, I went over it with diamond Stickles. While that was drying, I distressed the green leaves and inked the edges with antique linen DI. I did the same for the pink panel. I heat embossed both sentiments in Champagne EP. Before gluing down the poinsettia, I dug in a box of rarely used goodies, and found some of this gold netting to pop out from under it. Score! The flower is finished with a pink rhinestone. I love the shabby chic look to this card!

Now, it's time for you to make a pink Christmas card! (or as many as you want!) It's for a great cause! Stephanie and Lauren are hoping to reach $500, so let's make that goal happen! WE CAN DO IT!!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a fantastic day!
