We Wish You a Very Pink Christmas.....

Hello everyone: I have a super cute Christmas card done in pretty much non traditional colors to inspire you to join my SHOPPING OUR STASH teammates in our gallery.
The theme is to use mostly the color PINK in your creations, we can't wait to see what you come up with. This challenge will run for 2 weeks instead of the normal 1 week, we know how busy this time of the year can be, with all the preparations for family visits and friends dropping by so, one extra week will be just fabulous for all of us.

This card was made with mostly stuff from my stash of ribbons, left over die cut paper (the frame was cut last month I think, for a card but I changed my mind), I knew I had some die cut greetings in my little box where I keep them and there it was, the "Merry" word, all I did was to die cut it again on some fun foam for dimension, I also found there the three little Christmas Lights there, also left over from another project. The background paper is from my stash of pattern papers.
The sweet little Elf is from a My Favorite Things set called "Santa's Elves", I purchased a while back on Ebay but never used so, I combined a bit of old and new on my card.  I stamped this little sweetie with Versafine black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, I added a bit of gold gel pen to the jingle bell on her hat.


I always finish the inside of all my cards, this saves me time when I need to mail them.
I stamped all of this images with Tim Holts distress ink in Picked Raspberry.

So I hope you have a few minutes that you can squeeze in between shopping and cleaning to play along with us. For more inspiration, please go to the SHOPPING OUR STASH BLOG and check out the beautiful cards my teammates have there for you.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express. 
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

That is the cutest elf ever, and he looks adorable decked out in Pink! Isn't it fun when you can dig through that box of pre-cut items and find just the right elements to put a card together?! I love when that happens! Wishing you a wonderful season of joy!

So adorable, Maria! I generally make at least one pink Christmas card every year, but I don't think I did one this year. I did purple, though. Always do that, too. Love your elf all surrounded with the pretty pink. So cute in the frame.
