Todays card is for the Merry Monday #113 challenge to make a card using the colors of pink, silver and white. You can see the other samples and entries here. I chose a Flourishes Stamp set called Sweet Christmas. When I first saw the challenge I thought 'elegant' snowflakes or ornaments but, in the final analysis, I chose these pretty candy canes. I embossed the white background with a snowflake embossing folder and added touches of the silver glimmer paper and some pink cardstock which was also run through the Big Shot. Here 'tis.....
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black and colored with my Copics. I only used a couple of pinks and 2 cool neutrals. The ribbon is Offray and is from my stash. I cut the image with my classic circle nestabilities and used the 'old' technique of sponging while the image was still in the die. A little snowflake punched out for the bow and a small silver fern add a couple of finishing touches.
I'm really enjoying the Christmas Challenges plus the added benefit of having some cards already done when we get into crunch time in a few months. I hope you've enjoyed my little feminine Christmas card... thanks for taking a look.
