A Girly Christmas

After trying with Red & Gold for Christmas, I went back to my fav colors: pinks and greens with a touch of red. Most of my Christmas cards this year have these colors. I love the fresh, girly and happy sensations they give to my cards!

This morning I was hopping from blog to blog and I ended in a lovely blog with a lovely card made with a lovely stamp. I immediately followed the link (I apologise but I cannot remember the blog name, I lost it while browsing through the newly discovered store).

The store is Annabelle Stamps an Australian Company which sells cute stamps and craft goods. I already put some of their stamps in my wish list, as soon as I have some funds I'll surely be back to buy some.

Of course, they have a blog Annabelle Stamps Blog and a Challenge and... the theme this week is: "Say it in... Pink, Green and Kraft and... voilĂ , I made this card:

 I had colored this Jennifer Latte digi stamp from The Stamping Boutique yesterday, while waiting for my daughter's dance lesson. I wanted it to be girly, really girly and pink and... girly! This morning I still had no idea on how to make the card with it but when I saw the Challenge theme I knew it was perfect!
I made the card with green textured cardstock, added a Papermania patterned paper and used some craft paper behind the stamp colored with Copics and embellished with tons of glitters! A luxurious satin bow and a lilac bell add the final touch.

I love how it turned out!
