It's a Pink Christmas

Pink and orange peacocks, pink Christmas cards....whatever is the world coming to?




This card makes me feel preppy and young. Like 10th grade young, when I wore pink and green wrap-around skirts with alligator shirts, and carried a wood-handle purse with a cloth cover that matched perfectly my skirt. And add-a-beads. And penny loafers. With pennies in them.

Those were the days.

That lone pink pearl on the ground? Yeah, that's covering  a mis-matched border. Sometimes it's hard to line up even clear stamps perfectly. Mistakes are simply opportunities for embellishment. Right?

I hope to get a big Gratitude Challenge post up soon, but I'm too tired tonight. It's been a deeply weird week, and I need some beauty rest. Hope you are getting set for a lovely, restful weekend!

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Masculine Motifs, Take a Bough
ink: Memento pear tart, SU real red, pretty in pink
paper: PTI
accessories: half pearls

  1. Really pretty grouping of trees. I like the pearls so much! and the one where the ground stamping didn't line up just looks like one of the "ornaments" fell off the tree --- a lovely, whimsical idea! You couldn't have planned this better. Lovely card.

  2. Susan, you're rocking the non-traditional colors this week. Pink and green. Sigh. My copy of The Preppy Handbook was much loved, as were my alligator shirts and Topsider deck shoes.

  12. I love it Susan. Hey, if then wind were blowing, an ornament would be on the ground anyway. If a bird moved a branch on lift off, the same thing. Lol it was a happy accident and it's perfect.

  13. Perfect shade of green to mix with pink for a festive Christmas card! Of course, really the bling on the ground is just to balance the bling on the "i", right? :P

  14. My fav is the monochromatic, something about it just speaks to me. I have also made the mistake of using the wrong glue, it's very upsetting when it is a gift for someone, grrrrr
