Pink on a Christmas card??

I went out on a limb with this x-mas card, thanks to the SPCC x-mas combo #4 challenge. Here were the colors I had to work with:and here is my card:

I created a card with the same snowflake punch a couple weeks ago, but I just can't get enough of this punch!! The color combination on this card was fun, especially given that it is a christmas card. I think the pink on this really worked though as an accent color. Shocked when I was writing this and realized that I didn't use a single stamp on this card. Hope you enjoy!!

Tips from this card:
-I originally had two button on the lower right corner of my card, and then I traded those out for buttons cut out with my Big Shot. We all love those buttons, but try alternative embellishments... the Big Shot buttons will allow you to customize your colors.


I used the following product on this card (all product Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: wow - None.
Paper: Pixie Pink (105121), Very Vanilla (101650), Close to Cocoa (101341)
Ink: None
Accessories: Jumbo Snowflake Punch (116628), Scallop Edge Punch (112091), 1 3/8" Circle Punch (104401), Sizzix Buttons #5 (113440), Hemp Twine (100982), 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon (111367), Designer Buttons Button Latte (114333)

Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
