Pink

Another Christmas/Winter themed card to share today.

I am trying very hard to use up my coloured cardstock - in reality I am never going to even make a dent in it, but like to kid myself that I am being very good 😇and I am making inroads into the paper mountain.
I have rather a lot of pearlised card in pastel shades.   Hardly Used.    Ever.
Took a pink piece out and was going to make a baby card.    Ended up with this.

No excuses except
1. The stamp was out on the desk as I had used it for something else
and
2. I was inspired by a card seen some years ago on the talented Birgit's blog

This has to go down as one of the quickest cards I have made.
Stamped then embossed the trees in Silver EP onto watercolour card. The stamp is actually quite a big one so I cut off a bit from the top.
I used Victorian Velvet DI as it was the nearest pink shade to the base card and whilst waiting for it to dry I stamped the sentiment (From SU) and silver embossed.
When my watercolour panel was dry, I dotted some sparkly stuff all over it then attached it to the base card. Finished!
I've left the stamp out on the desk. I've left the pearlised card out on the desk too. Might as well batch make a load for Christmas in different shades - I can carry on believeing in that one day I will get to the bottom of the paper pile😏😉!

I feel your pain Viv ;). I also have lots of coloured card which seemed like a good idea when I bought it! It’s a great card and I love the gold trees x

Beautifully wintery and sparkly, this makes me long for winter. And that says a lot as i find it to be the worst season, with little light and long nights.

A very pretty seasonal card Viv, perfect for our 'Christmas' theme at Allsorts challenge, many thanks for joining in.

So pleased it's not just me with hoards of cardstock, just this week I found a box full of 12x12 bazzil, must be years old and 100 or more sheets of it - why did I buy it ??????

Everything about this is beautiful. I love the colours together and the touch of sparkle. I will never get to the bottom of my paper mountain either, I have at least banned myself from buying more.

That's the way to do it!! I too have loads of pearl used card stock just sat there. Love this card and how quick it was for you to make. Perhaps if I just leave everything out on my desk a fairy might come along and make it into a card for me. Hugs Mrs A.

It may have been a quick card but it is beautiful Viv, and love the bit of sparkle you have to the embossed trees, and the bit of watery pink in the background goes perfectly with the pastel pink card. x
