12 Days of Christmas - Post #6

I am participating in Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Card Challenge.

I am also participating in Shopping Our Stash - SOS #173 Challenge - Hello Sweetie. For this challenge you are to depict something sweet or make something sweet for your sweetie. I Christmas candy in my background for this challenge.

The "Pink Christmas" Card Challenge will run on Jingle Belles Blog from 12 a.m. on Friday, October 10th to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22nd. As in previous years, Stephanie and Lauren pledge to donate $4 per linked-up card to The Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The only requirement is that all link-ups be NEW Holiday Cards with some noticeable pink on in other words, not just Rudolph's Nose, lol!

Participants may use sketches, combine challenges and include any other colours in addition to PINK. You can showcase however many cards you'd like in one post, don't worry, they'll still count every single one of them towards the total.

I used Close to My Heart's Ruby, White Daisy & Pixie cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Dot Embossing Folder, CTMH's Corner Rounder and Doodle Bug Designs White Sequins.

I used CTMH's Home for the Holidays - October Stamp of the Month, Stitch Wonder, Santa Claus, Be Jolly - Hostess Rewards, Cutie Pie - December Stamp of the Month and Fill in the Blank - Holiday stamp sets with CTMH Ruby, Pixie, Hollyhock & Cotton Candy inks. 

For the inside sentiment, I used Copic Markers RV32 & RV11 to colour in the word Jolly and the Holly Leaves.

Don't can play along with Jingle Belles Pink Christmas Card Challenge too! Here is their link:
