Pink Christmas

Here is a pink card I made with Cammie's Warm Winter Wishes and Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP. Since the swirly paper was pink, I colored the snowman with pink Copics, too. I trimmed one of the layers in front of him , following the curve of the print, and then punched this striped piece from the pack with the threading water punch to look like a brightly painted picket fence and you're driving by the yard. (Remember this post when I told you a little about some of my neighbors? LOL!) Last I trimmed out some of the mittens from another Jolly by Golly piece like I did on this cookie card and put them on his twiggy hands, hugging that adorable heart. Base, stamped image and mats use Pure Luxury White and Rocket Red. Simple, sweet and so SO festive!! (who needs christmas lights with colors like this, hee hee!

Almost time for peeks, can't wait, can't wait!!

Cute card Melanie! At first I thought your fence was one of those little kid xylophones. Do you know what I'm talking about?
