Merry Monday #113 - A Touch of Pink at Christmas

Happy Monday Folks,
It's time for another Merry Monday Challenge and this week Kathy is challenging us to use White, Pink and Silver on our cards.  I decided to try this neat technique I saw at Convention in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago as Demonstrated by Rachel Van Rij from New Zealand to use Alphabet dies to make a word stand out.  I Silver embossed the Sentiments and Christmas Tree and then coloured some of the Ornaments and Toys with three different Pink Markers.

Stamps: Mama Elephant - Christmas Greetings, Stampin' Up's - Old Fashioned Christmas, Magical Season
Card and Papers: Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, Strawberry Slush,
Finishing Touches: Gelly Roll Pen, Crystal,
Cool Tools: Big Shot, Embossing Buddy, Silver E/Powder, Heat Tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Mama Elephant Alphabet Dies, Washi Tape, Pencil, Scoring Tool, Dble Sided Tape
Thanks for stopping by today. I would love to hear from you.
