Think Pink for Christmas!

Hi Guys and Gals, firstly I'd like to say another huge thank you to some more recent followers (you know who you are!) and also for the lovely messages I have received over the last few weeks, I LOVE reading them and I really appreciate it. Now onto this weeks Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge! The theme is pink Christmas, so I thought this lovely Tilda would be perfect...

I had to take a few photos, as you know photography = not my strong point!

I used white embossing powder around the edges, and punched out several sized snowflakes adorning them with pink gems. The greeting is from papermania. I used Martha Stewarts heart doily punch and snipped the edges to allow me to curl it around a circle, this shows up better below...

I've added some viva decor pearl pen in white to cover the snips up a little, and also on the brackets. The charm on one bracket is from craftsulove and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I've also added some startdust stickles around Tildas feet and under her dress at the bottom.

Stamps: Tilda with Vintage Roses; Papermania
Dies/punches: MS optic dot, MS doily hearts; Magnolia Tag; snowflakes (unknown)
Colouring: distress inks and copics (skin)
Sparkles/pearls: stickles startdust; viva decor pearl pen (white), gems (stash)
Flowers (wild orchid crafts)
Charm (craftsulove), cord (the bead shop in Brighton - a holiday purchase!!)

Thank you so much for looking and I appreciate any comments.
Have a fantastic week, and Happy Crafting!
Hugs, Katy. xxx
