Pink By Design Challenge - Use Non-Traditional Xmas Colors

Hi crafty friends!! This week is my team's week over at Pink By Design!! Our theme for the week is Christmas projects using non-traditional Christmas colors! The challenge starts today so make sure to get your projects linked up (link up at the bottom of this post!!). Winner gets a $10 gift certificate to the PBD store - which you WANT to win after all the great sets Sarah just released!!!

Here is my project...


I used some great digital paper from Lily Bimble and since the colors are pretty soft, I kept my card simple to make sure the prints stood out. I used pink embossing powder and a sentiment from the Old Time Christmas stamp set. My final touches to add some texture were a little bow made with 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon and some tiny little pearls. 

I will be linking this card up over at the 3 Girl Jam current Challenge. They have some GREAT prizes up for grabs right now!! AND Scrappy Mom's as well!

Speaking of prizes.....



'Tis the season for a giveaway!! In this little package there is a Old Time Christmas stamp set by Pink By Design, Fancy Pants rub ons, EK success and Sandylion embellishments, some twine from the Twinery, some red trim, and red and cream satin ribbon.

Leave a comment on this post (make sure to leave a way for me to contact you!!) and I will choose a random winner.
