The Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge # 77

 Last weeks snowmen challenge was such a hit with 47 entries! Wow. Everybody put so much thought into their designs, it was very hard to pick a favorite.
This week's image is modern and bright, with pink. :-) I am dying to see what you all come up with.
Clicking on the image below will take you to the challenge where you will find the cards made by Lesley, the other design team members and the challenge participants.


Here is my card......quite CAS for me.
I used the dark green and light green in the die cut circles, the pink in the strip pieced border and pearls, and the red in the buttons and the border.
The Christmas tree is hand cut from Designer paper. I frosted the red buttons with fine glitter.



Stamps: Hero Arts sentiment (CL343)
Dies: Spellbinders, snowflake is a hand held punch
Paper: Neenah white, Kaisercraft colours dark and light Green, red and pink, B/W spot Provo craft Mat Stack

See you at the next challenge, I've seen the image....mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!
