Who wants more pink?

Yep, another pink Christmas card from me. I just cannot get enough.

While my husband was undergoing his 4th round of chemo at the hospital, I had some time to do a little colouring. This fun image was one of the images I had printed the night before and took with me to the hospital along with a selection of Promarkers. The image is part of a digital set of 3 stamps and 2 sentiments by From the Heart Stamps, called In the Meadow Snowmen (yes, one of the other images has trees and some cute snowmen).
After my colouring was finished and I was home again, I die cut the panel using my SSS stitched rectangle die, and die cut the Merry sentiment (Ellen Hudson Essentials) from the panel and inlaid a white version. I used foam tape to adhere my panel to my card base after inking the edges with the same pink Promarkers that I had used for the trees. To finish things off, I added clear Wink of Stella to the sentiment and adhered a few sequins (SSS, Moonshine) using Multi medium matte.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
