Power Poppy: Think Pink!

Howdy Power Poppy fans!  It’s Friday!  I hope you have some wonderful plans this weekend.
It’s a new month so we have a brand new Power & Spark Challenge for you over on the Power Poppy Blog. This month, our uber talented Tosha Leyendekker is our hostesses and her challenge this month is…

Tosh says…
"I love vintage, so I often think of white and pink for Christmas decor. 
 I thought it would be fun to feature pink on a Christmas Card.  So, for this month's challenge, 
let's THINK PINK and make it a Pink Christmas." 

For further challenge details, please visit the Power Poppy blog HERE.

I just love nontraditional coloured holiday cards!  For my card  today I chose to work with the little solid holly stamp from the “Holly Golightly” stamp set to create my back ground first.  Then I used some watercolour paper and one of the stockings from the “Fully Stocked” stamp set as my focal point.  And finally, for my sentiment I used the “Peace & Joy” from the “Simple Joys” stamp collection.

Here’s a little close up of all the dimension…

Now, take a gander at the rest of the Bloom Brigaders today..

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

The background leaves done like that, gives so much dimension, and addeding the pink ribbon and the vellum was genius. Thanks for the close up. Totally, an adorable card.

We had such similar brain waves last week didn’t we? This is so cute Ally....I love the soft pink stamping. The white overstamping on the background is really sharp too!
