Our Think Pink evening is fast approaching and in light of what my dear friend Maggie is going through, it seems more appropriate than ever that I get involved. I'm planning to make various all occasion cards, but I also thought it might be fun to do a set of Pink Christmas cards for auction. I just finished the first one tonight in time for the WMS Pyjama Party Old Pyjamas challenge - to use old Christmas stamp sets.
I've used a few sets here Vintage Christmas Backgrounder which I embossed with white EP, and Compliments of the Season 2 and A Cottage Christmas which were embossed with Pink EP. The button is a Sizzlit die cut which I coated with versa mark and embossed with the same pink EP.
This is the first time I've used the Vintage Backgrounder and I have to say I'm smitten. Not only does it look beautiful but it also stamps like a dream.
Thanks for stopping by
P.S. I was so excited (and tired it was the wee hours of the morning after all) I forgot to add the other sources of inspiration for this card.
Festive Friday has this fabulous inspiration picture. If I hadn't already been Thinking about a Pink Christmas I certainly would be after gazing on this loveliness.
I also used Freshly Made Sketches #153 for layout inspiration
I am also entering this card in the lovely Darnell's NBUS challenge #2 as the Vintage Backgrounder had previously not seen ink, and it's a Christmas card.
