Jingle Belles Rock #41 - PINK

This week's challenge at Jingle Belles Rock is to incorporate pink into our project. Yes, PINK! GAH! I've already overdosed on (gah) pink from the HYCCT challenges at Splitcoast (and yes, I have fallen painfully behind), and NOW the Belles want us to use (gah) pink on a Christmas card?!??!?!?!!? I whined, but Belle Lauren told me to be strong, so I was, and I made this:

I embossed the top layer with the SU Houndstooth folder, then ran my Tattered Rose distress ink pad over it to ink up only the raised parts. It's a very dusty rose, and not in-your-face pink, but still ... and no, this is not getting any easier for me. ;/

The ribbon is SU Pool Party, the center panel is one of the SU Designer Frames folders, embossed then cut out. Rolled flowers were cut from some SU Domestic Goddess DSP with the MFT mini rolled roses dies. Sentiment (Inky Antics) is stamped in Memento London Fog.

Two more things: That bow. I couldn't get it to lay right to save my soul, so I added another piece of the same ribbon tied into the thing to offset the crookedness, and now it looks like I meant to do that. Gotta love stamping and all the opportunities for embellishment.

And MOST IMPORTANTLY, The Belles are donating $2 (one from Lauren, one from Stef) for each card posted by Wednesday's deadline for this week's challenge, so get going! Make a holiday card with pink in it and link it up over at Jingle Belles Rock!

Thanks for stopping by!
