INTAAS Use Pink for a Pink Christmas

We were set this challenge theme by Jennie and it's 'Use Pink for a Pink Christmas'. Head over to International Art and Soul and show us what you do with this challenge.

Once again my card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. The pink card is by Papermill and makes the perfect mat for this joyous sentiment and image by Bugaboo. I embossed the pink mat with the Tied Together embossing folder by Couture Creations. After printing the image/sentiment I coloured it with my Promarkers, obviously using pink as the main colour. I cut it with another of my numerous Spellbinder dies before fixing to the base mat. Mei Flower tiny pink pearls were added to the embossed background.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes with option of Christmas
Craft Rocket - Christmas/Winter
Sisterhood of Crafters - Embossing (Wet or Dry)

INTAAS - Gratitude

This challenge over at International Art and Soul was set by Maggie and the theme is 'Gratitude'. Please come along and show us what you can do.

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK. The cerise and lilac card is by Papermill and they were the base mats of the design. I also used a lilac and cerise patterned paper but I'm not sure where I got this from! Hmm. The sentiment was stamped in Distress Ink in a lilac shade and then cut with a Spellbinders die. The sentiment is by Bee Crafty and I bought it at Ally Pally a few years ago. To finish off the design I used two of Joanna Sheen's signature dies - the shooting star and the butterflies. I thought both were  perfect to go with this uplifting sentiment. I hope you agree.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
The Paper Funday - Anything Goes with option of Give thanks/Grateful
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
Love to Craft - Anything Goes

Thanks for joining me. I hope to see you again soon.
