And here is my offering for today. This is officially my first Christmas card this season! :). 

OK. So my colour scheme may raise a few eyebrows perhaps - what, white, pink and green for Christmas??? But ever since I made this Happy Dreams Do Come True glitter background card I just couldn't get this colour palette out of my head. Don't you think it's beautiful? :)



I cut a 6x6" card blank and a mats from green and pink cardstock and adhered them using
MyStik® Permanent Strips


For my background I stamped several Stampendous Jumbo Poinsettias with Brilliance Pearlescent Olive ink, using the free template (included in the stamp set) as a mask. I coloured the images with Tombow's ABT Dual Brush Pens (026, 098, 837, 856 and 905). 

Next I added a Spoonful of Snow Embossing Powders and Elements around the stamped panel and to the flower centres - heating them from underneath to set. I mounted my image to the card base over White Thin 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.


Next I stamped the pinecone branch from the Jumbo Forest Friends with the olive ink onto green cardstock and added snow 'clumps' in a form of Chunky White Embossing Enamel. Again adhered them with thin foam squares. 

For my flower cluster I die cut several Layered Poinsettia flowers from handmade paper and arranged them with the help of my trusty DODZ™ - Small.  I added a bow made from May Arts Suede String and added some tiny jingling bells. To adhere my flower cluster I used DODZ™ - 3D.

For the sentiment
I die cut two panels from Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and bonded them with Adhesive SheetsI stamped Believe Christmas with Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy onto the die cut vellum and heat embossed it with Crystal Embossing Powder

Whilst heating, the vellum started to curl but it looked kind of funky so I kept it :).

To finish I added some accents with Liquid Pearls.

I absolutely do think it's beautiful! But then, it's pink, so I'm contractually obligated to do so.
Okay, seriously, I do love me some pink, but this is absolutely gorgeous! The bling? The flowers?? Drool-worthy! You've knocked it out of the park with this one.
