A girlie pink and gold christmas card

Don't you just love bank holidays? I do! Apologies to anyone out there who has to work today but for me it's a chance to do some crafting, after a busy weekend that didn't leave any time spare.

And being a bank holiday Monday ... I popped over to MojoMonday for this week's sketch:

I decided to go back to my Christmas card making ready for the craft market and went for a very girlie pink and gold concoction with a bit of bling thrown in.

Stamp sets: Scandinavian Season, Best Yet
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Markers (Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose)
Wide Grosgrain Ribbon: Regal Rose
Striped Grosgrain Ribbon: Pretty in Pink
Other: Gold brads, Fire Circle Rhinestone Brad, Gold EP, Dazzling Diamonds
Non-SU: Nesties, Cuttlebug embossing folder

I coloured with Pretty in Pink marker behind the Dazzling Diamonds. The glitter is fine enough to let the background colour shine through and yet still give the sparkly effect.

The sentiment is from Best Yet (a set of six sentiments), a level 1 hostess set that will only be available until the end of September. After that it will be gone, so if you'd like to get your hands on a set please contact me to book a workshop.

Enjoy what's left of the holiday.
