Quirky's Recipe Challenge 15

Here it is!
(Sorry, I'm a bit late, I kept thinking the clock in my craft room was the 'old time' and it wasn't!) This wasn't going to be a Christmas Card... but... as you can see, it is! Challenge 15 is Anne's idea. (Chocolate Fudge Cake)
A Recipe Challenge
One ribbon, two shades of pink and three eyelets.
It was lovely but at the same time quite tricky, I kept wanting to print out blue. Just stick a sheet of pink paper on the card, I told myself. I used Pink Petticoat papers, because I knew I'd have loads of different pinks to choose from, but, what I didn't realise is, not all pinks look good together. I made the flowers next, then wrapped the ribbon around the second pink and fixed the bow on with silicone glue. Then before I attached that and the flowers to the card with 3D foam pads I used my Crop-a-Dial (that's pink too!) to fix in the silver eyelets. But I still hadn't decided on an image. I had all sorts spread out across my work bench but none of them would do. I even coloured a few in, but once that happened, the extra colour just didn't look right. So I left the image and decided to add some silver sequins to the flowers to match the eyelets.
Sitting on my laptop were about a dozen 'leaves' in black and white that I'd punched out when I first opened up my new punch. I picked up the white leaves placed them around the flowers and added some Stickles glitter and at once it became a Christmas card, without using any Christmas papers!
When I opened my folder of stamped images, the page fell open, and there at the top were the kissing hedgehogs! Perfect! So I didn't have to add too much colour because the white instantly became snow!
"Merry Kissmas" was done on my laptop in 'rose' rather than pink and the result is...a pink Christmas card! The font is a FREEBIE and is called Honey Script and you can down load it HERE where you'll find two font files, light and semi bold. (Click the pic to make it larger so you can see the font!)
As you can see, the lighting wasn't very good today. The 'blue-ish' picture at the top was actually done outside, where I had to wrestle with the wind! (I won't tell you what the white is, I'll let you guess!) Pop over To the Quirky forum, I know you all love pink, and make whatever tickles your fancy!!
