Pink Christmas - Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge 16






















As I enjoyed using this week's sketch I decided to make another card for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge 16.  The tree and sentiment/image stamps are from the Nutcracker Sweet set and the background is from Asian Garden additions.  I couldn't quite get the light right in my photos but the colour is mainly bright pink on white as I used Adirondack Watermelon ink for the background and embossed the images on bright pink vellum in white, though the centre tree is on a paler pink vellum to give a bit of a contrast.  I added a few score lines and matching pink ricrac ribbon to finish off this simple card.
