Pink Christmas wreath 2

Here's my second version of the pink wreath card. This time I did stamp the pink wreath the way I had intended, namely slightly offset from the white image. It's a technique I've been meaning to try for a while now, and I love the effect that the white and pink give on the kraft.

Again, the card is based on the following sketch:

Because this wreath is more delicate than the one with double pink stamping, I also kept the sequin embellishments more simple, using only a few large silver ones and a number of small white irridiscent ones that have a lovely soft pink glow.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas...for the cure
