Pink Christmas wreath 1

Since October is breast cancer awareness month, there are various challenge blogs out there challenging us to use pink on our projects. The lovely Jingle Belles are even donating $4 for every card that's being linked up. As usual, I'm almost too late to link up, so I'll keep this short.

I made two fairly identical cards. The first one did not go exactly as planned. After stamping the wreath (Very Best Holiday by Hero Arts) in white Unicorn ink onto kraft cardstock, I wanted to overstamp the image only once in pink (Memento). However, I put the wreath upside down, so I stamped the wreath once more, making sure the stamp was facing in the right direction this time.

The layout is based on this week's sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch.

I used one of the small banner stencils by Simon Says Stamp to create the banner by dabbing white Versacolor ink into the aperture and stamping one of the sentiments from the SSS Holiday folded banners set. I finished the card off with several Darice sequins.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas...for the cure
CAS(E) this Sketch - Challenge #50
Creative Craft Challenges - #21 Anything goes blogaversary
SNSSC24 - An. goes with glitter, embossing powder an/or flokcing
That Craft Place - Think pink
The Squirrel & The Fox - #55 Pink for breast cancer awareness
CHNC Extra - always Anything Christmas goes


  1. Oh, it's very pretty and I love the added sequins. I've made some cards upside down and wanted to scream...instead I just had to start over. Ugh!
    Thanks for the heads up for the CASology challenge with my card I posted yesterday. :-) I went over and entered it.

  3. May not be what you planned, but I love it just the same ... thanks for making another card for our pink for a cure week at jingle belles.

  4. ok, i guess it was *TECHNICALLY* a mistake, but i think the extra layer of stamping really gives this even more dimension! absolutely GORGEOUS, you make C&S look soooooooooo (deceptively!) easy!!! thanks for linking up with us in pink for a great cause at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥!
