Happy Friday!  My post today is doing double duty as I am hosting the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge over ta Splitcoaststampers and I’m participating with the Sketch Crew in Taylor’s TESC149.  I hope you’ll join in both challenges. 

My challenge is to create a Christmas or Winter card using any shade of pink as a primary color in your design.

If you’re not familiar with Hope You Can Cling To, it is an annual card drive held during the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) to benefit the UT MD Cancer Center in Texas.  You make cards and mail them to the Cancer Center to be used for breast cancer patients and their families.  There are tons of sponsors (TE is one of them) and lots of prizes up for grabs.  There have been  new challenges posted every day for the month of October, so surely you can find a few that grab you and make you want to stamp!  Check it out!

My card today features Penguin Pals and Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas 6×6 papers along with cardstock in Espresso, Wasabi and Pixie Pink.

I’ve embellished with some Liquid Pearls in 2 colors, some Sugar Sparkly Fluff, Smooch Paint, pink pom pom trim, a piece of a doily and some faux stitching.

Here’s the sketch I started with:
