A Very Pink Christmas



I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Ours was pretty awesome. Hectic, but lots of fun too. We managed to see most all of our family and still had lots of time for friends too. After I get my photos downloaded from the camera, I will post a few of them. 

 I usually make Jenna and Samantha cards to go along with their Christmas gifts and Jenna had a special request for hers this year. She wanted a pink card with some sparkle. Really though, that is her preference for just about everything!! I told her that I think that this is the pinkest card that I have ever made. Even the writing on the inside is pink. I started with Cocoa Riley and colored it with Copics and then added some Stickles to the hat for some sparkle. The ribbon I used is actually some ribbon for gift wrapping, but in person, it has a lovely sparkle that most of my other ribbon didn't have. I added the rhinestone for some extra bling and ended up with a card that made a twelve year old very happy!

Thanks for dropping by today!
