Memory Box Christmas card



Hi everyone!

Here's the challenge this week at Merry Monday:




I see lot of pink, purple, and even a touch of blue in this photo. Very pretty!

I decided to stick with all pink. 

Since I had out my Memory Box Poinsettia Bloom trio dies from a card I had just made a few days ago, I used them again for this one. I even had the pink paper still sitting there..... I'm not too good at cleaning up my messes I guess!

I inlaid the flowers, then came back with some outlines on top. A few pearls, sequins and the sentiment from SU's Wondrous Wreath, and it was done!

Also entering this at Jingle Bells:




For each card linked up, a donation will be made to the Susan B. Komen Foundation...head on over and link up for a great cause!
