Snowy Greetings!

I don't usually start my Christmas cards this early, although I have already made a couple for specific challenges. But as this is my first pink Christmas card of the year, I thought I would enter it into Crafty Ribbons Challenge #102. I do think I'm probably stretching the challenge a bit, but I don't know anyone with a new baby for a baby's first Christmas, nor do I know anyone whose spending their first Christmas together, so first pink Christmas card it is!

This card is also for The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge to use the sketch below, Crafty Sentiments' Challenge to use spots or stripes, In The Pink's Challenge #52 to use buttons and bows and for Crafty Little Fairies September Challenge to use sparkle and bling.


And here's my card with some very strategically placed frantage to cover up the blob from my W9 marker!
