Pink Christmas

Good afternoon everyone,

Wow, hasn't the weather changed,  it's a bit wild out there!

Today I  have another Christmas card!  However it turned out pink!   The stamp is from LOTV,  Memory Box die, Woodware snowflake punch, the card behind the ribbon is pearlised (which doesn't seem to show up on photos) and embossed with Papermania snow flakes embossing folder, the pink snowflake paper is from Crafts-Too (don't know why the snowflakes have a green centre....), I can't remember where the silver/white ribbon is from (I tend to throw away packaging as soon as I unpack things) everything else is from my stash.  I've coloured her with my ProMarkers, used some pearly stuff for the snow, Stickles for the snow on the ground and also put some glossy accents on her wellies but that hasn't come out too smoothly.

I'd like to enter in the followings challenges:

LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Ribbons and Lace
Sparkles Christmas Challenge - Non-traditional colours
Cute Card Thursday - Hip to be square

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, thanks for stopping by.
