A Pink Christmas

I made this card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS.

I stamped the Winter Wonderland tree (Impression Obsession) with White Craft Ink onto Blush Red Light Pristmatic CS and embossed with White ep. I then sponged around the tree with Aged Mahogany (Ranger Distress ink) to make the tree pop a bit more. All the panels are edged with White Craft ink also.

I then Diecut my "A Cardinal Christmas" (SU) sentiment with one of my Double Ended Tag Diecuts (Spellbinders), sponged the edges with the Aged Mahogany and craft white, and tied the ribbon to the edges.

The Tree and snowflakes have Rhinestone Stickers by Hero Arts and Kaisercraft.


Supplies:
Stamps - Winter Wonderland Tree (Impression Obsession), Sentiment (A Cardinal Christmas - SU)
Paper - Blush Red Light and Dark, Vanilla Cream (Prismatics) Laundry Line dp (MME)
Ink - Craft White (SU), Aged Mahogany (Ranger Distress Ink)
Accessories - Double Ended Tags (Spellbinders), Snowflakes (Making Memories), Copics, Detailed White EP, Rhinestone Stickers (Hero Arts, and Kaisercraft), Sponge, Corner tag Punch (SU), Ribbon

Tosh, the card is absolutely stunning; what a great job you did with the colors and simply bringing out the tree on it. You also do a good job with instructions and the supply list; makes it easy on those who want to grow up and create like you :-)
