Pretty in Pink.....and Purple.....

Hello Everyone: Today I have a card to share with you for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge and the TIME OUT Challenge , which has a theme of Christmas with the optional twist of PINK and PURPLE, here is my card.

This image is from Stamping Bella and it's called Season's Greetings by Mo Manning. The image is stamped onto a panel of Canson Canva water color paper with Stazon Jet Black Ink and colored with the aqua painter and my Stampin Up! markers in Perfect Plumn, Elegant Eggplant, Olive Green, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and Real Rose. I added a bit of Bashful Blue to the snow on the ground.  The little sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Holiday Home". 
The snow flake is cut with THIS Impression Obsession dies out of a piece of silver wrapping paper, I also die cut it again on the water color panel to place the silver one back like a puzzle piece, I have a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock in the back.
I hope you like this card, here is the banner that inspired it.
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great Halloween weekend. Do not eat to much candy, I'm hoping that the weather will stay, if not warm, at least ok enough for the kids to Trick or Treat, the weather folks keep saying it will rain up here in NW. Indiana, I really hope they are so totally wrong, otherwise I will be stuck with all of the candy and that spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!!!!

    1. Thank you Anita, the fact that she is just holding on to this candy cane while the wind is blowing so fierce, is one of the things that attracted me to this image.
      The Time Our color challenge had two of my favorite colors.
