Using pink and red in February to make....

 ....a Christmas card, of course!

and the inside:

I did throw in some gray to break up all that pink and red though.

I used a snippet of ancient pink woodgrain paper, and found a 

red-with-pink-dots paper that were the perfect color match to the

woodgrain paper! The white strip was stenciled in gray ink and the

last layer has a diamond pattern on it. I recently rediscovered my

jars of micro beads, so I used some on the center of the flower,

then gave it and the pink berries a good coating of Wink of Stella

for even more shimmer.

(close up of the micro beads:)

I really love how this card turned out, and it has many of my

beloved layers on it! LOL!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend!
