Pink Christmas ~ I can't help it...

Oh how I enjoy being a guest on the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge design team!  It is a delight to share a new card with you every week.  I would love to see your creative take on the sketch and do hope you decide to play.  I am really jammin' into the Christmas spirit, so here is what I created with this week's gorgeous sketch:

 {Singing: "These are a few of my favorite things..."}

Girls in white peacoats all nestled together
Gold background paper that looks just like feathers
Snowflakes all stamped and Stickled to add bling
These are a few of my favourite things.

I used a Crafty Secrets image.  Who doesn't love sequins, glitter, lace, buttons, seam binding and ink.  I love pink too and couldn't help but use it on this Christmas card.  All the beautiful papers are from our monthly sponsor, Paper Temptress
  1.  Cranberry Brown Bag: This paper is so cool it's the texture of a paper bag and one side is colored, the other side is brown.  I used it here both ways.  :)
  2. Ice Pearl Glossy: Shimmery and lovely.  It punches like a dream.  Then I stamped snowflake onto it carefully with Stazon.
  3. Mountain Rose & Rose Quartz Stardreams: Oh so yummy (pink) metallics.
  4. Brockway Pink: Baby pink deckled brockway stationary.  So pretty!
  5. Retro Gold Glossy Lustre: This paper is DIVINE.  It's texture looks somewhat like feathers swept through paint.  Then the COOLEST thing happened............ By accident, I scratched a corner of this delicious gold paper.  So I took my nail file to the rest of the edges to make it look like I did it on purpose.  Such a cool (vintage) effect. 
 The snow everywhere is clear glitter glass accented with Icicle Stickles.  Above you can see the brown side of the paper bag paper and the (happy accident) scratches on the gold.

This weeks's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
