With Love at Christmas

Good morning. I'm not really looking forward to this week as John is working away in Luxemborg from today until Friday :o(
So I think I will have to try and keep myself busy with some crafting and I really need to do some shopping for our upcoming holiday in a few weeks time :o)

So today's share is another non DT card :o)
I just had to join in the Pretty in Pink challenge at Lil's Little Fairies and as I have been in the mood to make some Christmas cards - and there are a number of Christmas in July challenges around in blogland I knew that's what I wanted to do.

I love this little sweetie and she looks gorgeous in pink with lashings of Glamour Dust for her fur trim.

Image - 'Christmas Dance' coloured with PM's and FM's 

Here's a close up of the scrummy Spellbinders Create a Flake Snowflake die - covered in Creative Expressions Clear Glass Micro Beads
Smaller snowflakes - Martha Stewart punch - Vellum and dipped in Glamour Dust

Design Papers - Pink Petticoat 'Snowflakes' printed in both positive and negative in Rose

This also used:
Spellbinders beaded square with small square cut out of centre to make a frame.
Spellbinders Ribbon Banners for sentiment from LOTV
Organza ribbon and adhesive pearls from stash

Lil's Little Fairies - Pretty in Pink

FAB card. The LOTV images are among my favorites, and you've coloured this one up so nicely. I really like your snowflakes, and the use of the non-traditional colours. Well done. Thank you for entering this week's Christmas challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.
