All I Want for (a Pink) Christmas....Is You!

It's time for a super sweet Christmas card and this time it's not a Christmas image but I just love it.
And although I really like the traditional colors for Christmas I must admit to loving last years Basic Grey image Eskimo Kisses and the pink theme that runs through it.

Creative Cottage - Someone Special at Christmas
Paper Playtime - PS I Love You
Lollipop Crafts - Girlie
Crafty Emma's - Pink
Polly Craft - A Glittery Christmas
Creative Inspirations - A Pink Christmas
Thrilling Thursday - Anything Goes Christmas Theme
The Stampman - Christmas
Scrapbook Sisters - Christmas
Creative Inspirations - Christmas or Winter
Anything Goes - Embossing (I embossed the image before coloring as I used Versafine ink that smudges with Copic's unless embossed)
Passionately Artistic - Linky Party (link any and all your projects)
Fresh Brewed - 2 of More Patterned Papers
The Paper Variety - 1 color of mist/Paint, 2 flowers or chipboard pieces and 3 patterned papers
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Hanna and Friends - Card with "Inner Life" (decorate the inside too)
Crafty Ann's - Non Traditional Christmas Colors
No Time To Stamp - Non Traditional Christmas Colors
Stamps R Us - Sparkle and Scallops
The Secret Crafter - Sparkle and Shine
Paper Romance - Everything But The Kitchen Sink (lots of everything!)
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Marker Madness
Stamping With The Dragon - Inspired by a Holiday Song (the title)
Incy Wincy - Rock On (music inspired)
Crafts and Me - Glitter
The Crafty Pad - Christmas Sparkle
Crafty Purple Frog - Sparkle
One Stitch At A Time - Favorite Colors (I love coloring with Pinks)
Sentimental Sundays - Childhood


Card Recipe:
Image - Sweet Dreams by Penny Johnson
Paper - DCWV Eskimo Kisses
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cut - Beaded Circles by Spellbinders
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Border Punch - French Scroll by Martha Stewart
Mist - Homemade with Viva Precious Metal Color Paint in Mother of Pearl
Glitter - Glamor Dust



I see many of my English cardmaking friends using Glamour Dust on their cards and although Decor are an American company you don't see it in the big box stores very often, so it was wonderful to see it in Hobby Lobby in the Christmas department.
I used Elmers glue pen under the the glitter and it worked wonderfully. I only have the Crystal and the Gold but I'm sure I'll be using them both on many cards before Christmas comes :)
