CSAYL Challenge #42 - Shades of Pink

Time for another Christmas creation! I know it may seem early to start working on Christmas cards but really it's a perfect time! I know I'm trying to get a head start so I'll have more cards to sell at my craft shows this year. PLUS new this year we are doing gift sets. So even if you aren't ready to start making your own holiday creations, I hope you'll still check out the blog for some awesome inspiration!

The challenge this week is to create a holiday card using shades of PINK. Pink probably isn't the first color that pops into your head when talking about holiday cards. For me, when I received the challenge I instantly thought snowmen!


For my card I used a new stamp I received a couple weeks ago from Penny Black. I colored it with my pencils and OMS and added some pink fun flock to the snowman's hat and scarf. The sentiment and pattern paper are from Doodlebug both of which I've had for quite some time. I have a bad habit of buying and never using (who doesn't right?) Here is a close up of the image:

I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card but I did decorate it too. So whatcha think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll visit the CSAYL blog and participate this week. You can link your creation there using Mr. Linky.
