Pink Rudolph

Good evening everyone,

As promised, here is the first of at least 4 cards, I am starting off with a Christmas card. A bit of an usual card for me, since I've never done a pink Christmas card before, but it was a good challenge. Difficult to make it really Christmassy, but in the end I think I've pulled it off:

Materials used:
* White square base card
* Marianne Design Eline's Old-Fashioned Christmas backing paper
* Pink paper crumpled and inked with Vintage Photo distress ink
* Nellie Snellen Ollie's Chrismas stamp set, coloured in with Promarkers
* Red Fire Cosmic Twinkles
* Ribbon,  gem flowers and sentiment stamp from my stash

I am submitting to these challenges:
* Christmas Challenges with Sketches (Sketch)
* Christmas Card Challenges (Christmas Card)
* Crafty Sentiments (Christmas in June)
* Crafty Hazelnut (Pink and/or Purple)
* DCD (3 shapes, 2 colours, 1 ribbon/bow)
* DYSU (Squares)
* For Fun (Christmas)
* Little Claire's (Pink and Brown)
* Sparkle's Forum Christmas (Glitter)
* There She Goes (Glitter, Glitz and Bling)

Let me know what you think! Have a great evening, see you tomorrow!
