Christmas Card Club # 13 - Pink and White

Good morning; it's  Christmas Card Club again.  These two weeks whizz round so quickly - and it also means we are halfway through the year.  I'm sure I only took my Christmas tree down six weeks ago, not six months .... lol!  Karen is our hostess this time and she asked us to make a card in pink and white, but we could also add a smidgen of silver, gold or black.  I actually managed to keep to pink and white.

My Card

6 x6" card base
raspberry pearlescent cardstock - my stash
Memory Box - Grand Merry Christmas
Marianne Dies - Poinsettia
Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots embossing folder
Spellbinders - Foliage

A CAS card this time - or pretty much CAS..  I just brushed a little burgundy ink over the raised parts of the poinsettias and then sprinkled some Diamond Dust over them.  Doesn't show up well in the picture but in real life they are quite sparkly. 

Sorry my blogging and commenting is a bit spotty at the moment but I have a lot going on.  I will be around to visit as soon as I can, I promise.
