In The Pink - Diecuts and Punches

Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies

Well it's In The Pink time again...  and we have a nice easy one this time - the theme is Diecuts and Punches..  so I thought I'd go the whole hog and not do any colouring at all... Hope you like! Please excuse the photograph though... the card was lovely to make, good to look at... but SOOOOOO difficult to get to show how good it actually looks in real life on the piccie!

I sponged the background of this card using Distress Inks.. then stamped some snowflakes with Versamark so the colour deepened - they're so difficult to see on the photograph though - I'm sorrry!

Card Recipe:
Distress Ink Sponged Background
Paper Smooches Sentiment Stamp embossed with 
Bright White Embossing Powder
Small Snowflake Stamp
Hero Arts/Sizzix Tree Die from Holiday Cheer Set
Memory Box Frostyville  Border Die
CC Designs Holly and Berry Die
Glitter and Gems

We'd love to see you over at In The Pink - hope you can join in the fun!

Big hugs
