Pink for Christmas

I am usually a very traditional red and green (and sometimes blue) decorator when it comes to my Christmas decorations, cards, clothes etc. Last year I received a line of Christmas papers that was pink, grey, turquoise and bright green- totally not my style so they have sat in my scrapbook bag for ages unopened. One of these products was paper ribbon and the sketch this week at Merry Monday immediately made me think of it.



I used the paper ribbon for the banners and also used some pink and green papers left over from a Love kit I had. I have found that you don't always have to use specific Christmas items to make Christmas cards. In order to make the pink and green work for me, I decided to make it really girly so I added some swirls and a touch of bling as well. This card will be great for one of my crafty friends  who loves pink!

Supplies used:
Creative Memories: Holidazzle Paper Ribbon, Nancy O'Dell Series Love Kit, Square Maker.
Stampin' Up: Lucky Limeade cardstock, Melon Mambo Ink, Season of Joy stamp set, Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set, Modern Label punch, Basic Rhinestones.
