Challenge #61 - Bearlymine Designs Challenge - "Pink Christmas"

Good Morning Crafters, well my first Team Leader blog post for Bearlymine Designs went reasonably well though I did forget a couple of things so Im hoping that this weeks Challenge post will be better, keep your fingers crossed I do a better job of it.
Anyway back to this weeks Challenge its all about a "Pink Christmas" a bit unconventional but I think the colour pink does make beautiful cards and I hope  you will think so when you see my card. Now you will want to know who is sponsoring us this week and that is Whimsey Stamps.

and they are offering a fabulous prize of 5 digi images of winners choice.

And here is my card for this weeks Challenge.

The image I decided to use is from Funky Kits and I have stamped her onto white card and then used my copic pens afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out, and the mount I have used is one of the Spellbinders Marvellous Square die, the sentiment was cut with one of the new Britannia Sentiment dies from Robert Adams.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, and the papers I choose to use are from Donna of Bearlymine Designs "Pastel Christmas" paper set and you will find it here, I have used two papers the first is a pretty pink background with flower sprays on, the second has been cut with Cheery Lynn doily die, and placed in the middle of the first mount, then around the middle I have wrapped a strip of pink satin ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment across the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used three poinsetta flowers and with two holly berry's at either end I have stuck them to the card with silicone glue on top of punched out holly leaves in the top left hand corner. The final flourish are the four pink gems in the top and opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope you will want to take part in this "Pink Christmas" Challenge.

Morning Shirley,

I know I'm a bad visitor lately, everything seemed to take twice as long as it used to, but I think you understand.

The frame for your image which is coloured beautifully, is so pretty, I could be very tempted to buy that one I think. And those pretty poinsettias compliment it all perfectly.
