Happy Thursday everyone! I have a little Christmas shabby card to share with you today. I was bound and determined to use only the colors pink and red today...and well, I kind of achieved that. I totally had this great card envisioned in my head, and of course, it turned out NOTHING like what I hoped for, LOL! Do you ever do the same thing? Well, I ended up adding kraft and then distressing it up. This card was originally going to be a clean and simple...yeah, totally didn't happen.
I played along with Splitcoast's latest sketch challenge and used my new sets from Taylored Expressions, Sparkle & Cheer and Take Note - Holidays. I know, a lotta pink going on up there, yeah?
I started by using one of the new Sizzix/Basic Grey embossing folders on some Pink Pirouette cardstock and then distressing the edges and softening them up with some white craft. The white trim came right from the TE store here and then I tied some pink seam binding around the panel. My snowflakes (which you can barely see...boohoo!) were die cut with the new Snowflake die set and then I went around all the edges with some Frosted Lace Stickles. The swirly bling with pearls came from Want 2 Scrap.
I'm gonna be honest with ya...I'm having a love/hate relationship with this card. It's kind of a lot of pink....even for me! I like the look in person, but maybe not so much photographed. I dunno...what do you think?! :) LOL...that's SOOOO a loaded question.
Thanks for the visit anyway!
