Decided this year to try and use more than the traditional colours for christmas cards, so up to now have used lilac and pale green, the traditional red/green, an aqua blue and here is the latest one - pink and brown!
I have had this brown and pink polka dot ribbon for quite a while and found it the other day whilst ferreting about in the ribbon scrap box so made the decision there and then to use it on the next Christmas card.
I coloured Mo's image with promarkers - my colouring on this wasn't the best as I tried to do it in electric light - but it's passable!(just....) - the Daylight lamp is on the christmas list as a present to myself..... I glittered her hat and parts of her coat and the dog's scarf with Stickles.
The backing paper is a glittered brown and pink spots from the First Edition 'Love Letters' stack and I layered it onto dark brown cardstock. I used the same dark brown to frame the image and then ran some tickles round the edge.
The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts which I added a liberal helping of glitter for some more sparkly bits and the jingly bells are from my christmas stash! I printed the words onto another piece of card from the Love Letters stack and made into a tag shape to co ordinate with the sparkly spotty tag from the mat pad.
Couple of pink pearls and a die cut sparkly snowflake finished the front and the inside has a co-ordinated colour scheme.
