Pink & Green Christmas



Pink & green is my favourite colour combo & when I saw these gorgeous digi papers at the Sweet Shoppe I had to get them.  I used another image from (one of my favourite designer's) Cheryl Alger this one is called "Up in Arms"  & I coloured it with ProMarkers & Glamour Dust.  Our challenge at For Fun this week is "Dry Embossing" so I used this embossing folder that I have had for ages but never used, I wasn't sure if it would go through my old Zip-e-Mate (an old die cutting machine) lol but it did & I really like it so think I will be using it again & I sanded the card to show more detail.  I finished off with silver ribbon, bows n bells, die cute snowflake with a brad & greeting from Craftwork Cards (ooh & 2 gems).

I'm entering this card for these challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's - Tulle or Ribbon
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Snow/Snowflakes
C.R.A.F.T. - Dry Embossing 
Digital Tuesday - Something Brought but not used Before (embossing folder)
One Stitch at a Time - Winter Wonderland
Paper Sundaes - Let It Snow
Sparkle - Any Christmas Card
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Trees & Ribbon
