A few days ago I happened across a Challenge that was looking for pink Christmas cards by Jingle Bells. For each card that is entered into this challenge a $4 donation will be made to the Susan G Komen cancer organisation. Also the Sisterhood of Crafters are also looking for Pink Christmas cards for Breast Cancer. Having a few friends that have unfortunately been through this awful disease, it is a very worthwhile cause close to my heart.
So here is my entry...
That is not a grey line down the right hand side...the sun was shining at the same time as it was pouring with rain whilst I took the photo which left a shadow down the side.
I have used some NBUS in the form of Tonic dies and embossing folder. I used a Snippet of white card to emboss and brushed over some Versamark and sparkly embossing powder. Unfortunately you cannot see the sparkle but believe me it is very sparkly. The pink cardstock is Bazzill and the black is Papermania. The baubles are cut from Spellbinders and stamped with matching Creative Expressions stamps. I added a further swirl of Memory Box holly which was stickled with some bright pink Stickles, which I used again on the right hand side. A little bit of clear sparkly thread and hey presto, another card in the tin ready for posting!
If you wish to join in the Jingle Bells Challenge you have until Wednesday 22nd. The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge ends very soon. Just getting in by the skin of my teeth! The cause is all worthwhile no matter which country the donation is made.
I am taking this over to the Snippets Playground too as there are Snippets involved. Better throw my hat in first as I didn't join in the frolics and fun last week...oops - not intentionally of course!
Thanks for calling by.
