Pink Christmas...

Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake. -Francis Bacon, SrI have had this image printed off and sitting on my desk for weeks. I LOVE everything about the image, but didn't have just the right plan for it. Then I saw this month's sketch at Tickled Pink Challenges and the {Pink} Christmas Challenge at Lil Lolita Boutique (which is over now, darn!) and I knew what I wanted to do!I love Pink, Black and Kraft together and I thought it was a perfect Non-traditional Christmas color combo. Here is what I came up with...

The snowflakes are from a Stamp and Punch Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment on the inside is from an old set I got Years ago, it is a pre-inked set of Holiday sentiments from Just Rite Stampers from back when they were First breaking into the Art Stamp world, apparently the pre-inked designs stay wet for a LONG time!!

Supplies:
Stamps: 30's Lylah (Lil Lolita,) Martha Stewart Stamp & Punch, Holiday Sentiments (JustRite)
Paper: Good Cheer (October Afternoon,) Kraft, Black, White (PTI)
Ink: Copic Markers, Printer, Pretty in Pink, Marigold Morning, Craft White
Misc: Martha Stewart Punch, Jolee's Snowflake Stickers, Zva Creative Pearls, Stickles, PTI Twill Ribbon, MFT Small Scalloped Border Die
