Color Throwdown: Sending you Holiday Hugs & Love

I couldn't let the challenge at the Color Throwdown go by without playing. It has pink in the color combo and I still needed to make Christmas cards for my pink-loving nieces! Here's what I came up with.

CC Pink

My card uses silver embossing powder and a sparkly silver star - and the pink plaid background paper is also glitter paper - so there might be enough glitter for one of my nieces.  But I'm realizing as I type that there's only three gems and that's not nearly enough - I may adhere a few more before I send it!

I got the Reverse Confetti Tree with lots of ideas to use a rainbow of colors or lots of patterns, but in this case, I think the plaid glitter paper works beautifully.  The sentiment is from The Stamp Market. The set is called Merry & Magical - it's full of fun fonts and some slightly different sentiments - mostly "magical" sentiments but in this case I love that it includes "hugs & love"!

All I have left to do for Christmas is one more niece (so expect some pink/sparkle this week) and my two sons (which will probably be snarky).  However, I still have quite a bit in my not-yet-used stash but now I can make Christmas card 100% for fun!!

Thanks to The Card Concept for the inspiration!
