Sweet Christmas

Hi there

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.
