Sparkly Pink Christmas


 
 
Hi and Good Morning everyone, Alison here today, sharing a card inspired by this weeks challenge theme of 'Non Traditional Christmas Colours'.  As always there is a fab prize on offer and you still have plenty of time to enter HERE:

Now I love to see light and fresh looking christmas cards, they can really stand out amongst the darker, more traditional colours and its quite nice to have a break from all the reds and greens too.

I started off with a 6 x 6 scalloped card base and layered K&Co papers from my scraps box onto American Crafts white textured cardstock.

This stunning Lace Christmas Tree die cuts beautifully and is so ornate and swirly it has a real wow factor!  I layered it on top of the matching Angel Wing for dimension and then added lots of sparkle and bling.  The gorgeous snowflakes were layered snowflowers from set 1 and 2 held together with moonstone brads, and the smaller snowflakes were made using embellishments from the BAF embellishment sets.

The beautiful border is the Anastasia die with 2 staggered layers and topped off with pink dotty satin and organza ribbon.  This was a pretty quick card to make, and would work well with any colour combo and scraps of papers :)

All dies used on this card are:

Lace Christmas Tree + A/W
Anastasia Border
Snowflowers #1
Snowflowers #2
Snowflakes plate (the 3 mini snowflakes, top left)
BAF - Embellishment set  #1
BAF - Embellishment set #2
Square Classic Silver Stackers
Scalloped Square Stackers

I cant wait to see how you interpret this  weeks challenge and dont forget this is always fresh and inspirational projects uploaded daily by the rest of our talented DT over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration blog.

Have a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.
