Lol, sorry peeps, it’s another Christmas card!  I try and combine challenges where I can so I don’t overload you with too many Christmas cards in a week, but couldn’t make that work this time round.  So, here’s a card for Crafty Hazels Christmas Challenge, who wanted to see Christmas Foliage and/or Flowers.  I also used the current sketch on Sketch & Stash for the LO.  It’s a bit bright, you might want to grab your shades!!

Did I blind you??  I have to admit, pink isn’t my first colour choice for a Christmas card but I decided to use up some bits out of the scrap box and seemed to have a lot of pink scraps for some reason.  They’ve been there forever as the paper is from a DCWV 2008 Christmas Stack and I can’t remember the last time I cut into it.  Certainly wasn’t Christmas just gone.  Isn’t the image lovely?  It was a free download from Just Inklined and I have to admit to a terrible thing here…. I’ve signed up for a number of notifications from digi sites if they have a weekly freebie, and I collect them diligently and then I never use them!  Terrible I know, especially when they’re as gorgeous as this one.  I coloured it with Whispers markers and added some Cotton Candy Stickles to the pink bow.  The greeting is Hero Arts and I clear embossed it too.
