Think Pink - WMS Forum October Christmas Challenge

It's the 10th of the month and that means Lynn has the October Waltzingmouse Christmas Card Challenge up in the Playroom of the WMS Forum.  Her challenge for us this month is to 'THINK PINK" -  a color you might not automatically choose for a Christmas card! (Lynn always gets us thinking outside the box!)

After a little pondering - here's what I came up with:
I used Raspberry Fizz for my pink - along with stamps from Nordic Winter - I love the cross stitched look of this pretty set.

These were so easy to stamp - I made 4 of them for my Christmas stash - quick as a wink!
On the inside -  I stamped the tree from the Nordic set and a sentiment from A Cottage Christmas.
How many Christmas cards have you made so far????    Come along and join us in the Playroom of the WMS Forum and get some done!

At the suggestion of my stamping friend Stef, I'm also entering this in the October Jingle Belles challenge -  Pink!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Nordic Winter, A Cottage Christmas
Paper:  WHite, True Black, Raspberry Fizz - PTI
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Raspberry Fizz - PTI
Accessories: Rhinestone - Kaiser Craft.
