Holiday Pink & Pearls

Hi's the weekend. YAY!!! That means I get to hang out with my sweet hubby AND it means I get to spend some time in my craftroom...YAY again! Here's a cute little Christmas card that I just finished and wanted to share with you. I chose some really beautiful DP from October Afternoon called "Sing the Carols" that I picked up at a local craft shop in town. I just love this design...actually, it's double-sided...with music on one side and pink with ivory snowflakes on the other it's perfectly color-coordinated! I thought it would be perfect for Totally Tilda's "Pink and Pearls" challenge HERE. I used a sweet little image...some of you may recognize her...her name is...TILDA (teehee)!!!! Actually she's called "Vintage Tilda" and is from the "Very Merry Little Christmas 2010" collection. I have Tilda sitting on top of a "Magnolia" Christmas Ornament...both images can be found at Magnolia-licious. Don't you just love Tilda's freckles?!! I do!! Perfect little angel kisses on the bridge of her, that is, if she actually had a nose!

So here's the rest of the "recipe" I used in making this little card:
Cardstock: Very Vanilla & Cherry Cobbler (SU)
Lace square, circle, & snowflake dies: Nestabilities
Snowflake punch: Martha Stewart
Snowflake edge paper punch: EK
"Merry Christmas" sentiment: SU
Inside Christmas sentiment: Just-Rite
Stickles & Polar White Flower Soft
Ribbon, pearls, and flowers: my stash
Ink for sentiments & edging around image: Cherry Cobbler from SU
Copic Sketch Markers (see photo below) I should also tell you that I spent nearly all day trying to figure out how to get the cute little watermark (available from Whimsy Stamps) on my photos. No, it's not really a difficult process...for most humans on the planet Earth...but for me...another major accomplishment. YAY ME!!! So...I hope you enjoy this little card...and, as always, thanks soooooo much for stopping by for a peek! See you soon...Pat
