Pink Christmas Gifts Greeting


This is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so pink is in! Jingle Belles challenge ladies donate $2.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Fund for each pink card entered in their challenge! When I saw the color dare at Color My Heart Color Dare I envisioned Christmas gifts all wrapped in pink. The color dare is to use only White Daisy, Pixie, and Cotton Candy, so I pulled out those inks and some retired paper fundamentals that matched those colors. This was so fun and easy I made more than one.

The gifts are each 2" square so the card is 6.5" x 5."  The sentiment was stamped with Cotton Candy, a recently retired ink.  It's one of the small stamp sets that's only 2.95, perfect for small spaces. I used the CTMH Snowflakes Embossing Folder for the background, White Twine, White Glitter Paper under the sentiment.  The Pixie Twine was also recently retired. Since I'm trying to use up my retired CTMH papers I decorated the insides as well:

(Sorry, CTMH friends. I just had to use this verse by Dawn McVey from Papertrey Ink because it emphasizes the best gift - Christ's gift of salvation. Thank you, Dawn!)

Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll consider entering some pink cards in the Jingle Belles challenge and help support research for curing breast cancer!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
All Sorts #385 - Let's make it PINK
Color My Heart Color Dare #215 - White Daisy, Pixie, Cotton Candy ONLY

Crafty Catz #342 - all tied up
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas #303 - cute or anything Christmas goes
Daring Cardmakers - seriously monochromatic
Jingle Belles Challenge - Pink Christmas
