Pretty in Pink Christmas

I'm definitely on a roll today girls,  this is my third post and I have a pretty Hanglar Christmas card to show you, I know there are more than the normal photo's but I wanted to show you the inside and the glitter around the image and on her little fur trim.  

I used Pro Markers and Staedler water colour pencils as my mediums, the papers are to die for, I've had them at least 6 months if not more.  They are MME  Oh la la and I won them from the lovely Tasha over at Millie's Magic Moments in a fabulous candy draw along with lots of other goodies.  I couldn't bear to cut them up until now.

I've stitched all round the outside and the inside of the card, used Nestie's, organza ribbon and made the lovely little heart embellishment.  The full recipe for my card is below this post.

I am entering her into the following Challenges:
1. Papertake Weekly Challenge:  This week they are celebrating 3 years of challenges and you can pick any of the past challenges to do again.  I chose Shiny, Sparkly & Special from May 2010.  You still have time to do their fantastic blog hop too.  Lots of prizes up for grabs. Yummy

2. Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge:  Are looking for stitching this week real or faux.

3.  Colour Create Challenge:  This week have a colour theme of Pink, Green & Cream.

Well that's about me for today ( I think !!)  I'll be off to visit a few blogs for a while and catch up with some friends.  Hope you are all having a nice day.
