I'm dreaming of a pink christmas!

Waaaaahooooooo!!!!  My broadband has been down and I'd made this card specially for a number of challenges the main one being Passion for Promarkers as they asked for PINK and white christmas and I dont make many xmas cards *but* hey when I'm asked for pink xmas I'm not gonna say no!

Anyway I finished this yesterday morning with a view to blog after the kids went bed but oh no the broadband went down aaaaargh!  Never one to let a little thng like that stand in my way plus the fact I have a blackberry I emailled my entry in and I've won top prize (1st time ever!) AND Top 5 which is 2 weeks running and my 5th time which I'm sooooooo chuffed about as I do put so much time into the colouring :)  Thank You girls!

So here she is, blogged a day late!

Image is the new gorgeous Hannah Lynn stamp from Crafts & Me called Winter Green Wishes coloured with promarkers and I've used a clear sakura stardust pen on the white bits and edged with distress ink.  Fab little sentiment tag is from Stamping All Day, they do so many fab little text stamps which suit all the fairies, fantasy and princess/tilda type cards and always great service from Nicky.  If you've never seen them before go for a visit, I love their text stamps :D

Flowers are from Wild Orchid, I buy them all in white and spray or colour them.  These ones are done in my new toy which is one of the cosmic shimmers called Angel Mist which is an iridescent pink Mmmmmm!  Have added faux pink stitching and have gone round the main DP with glamour dust.  Added some buttons, AB coated hot pink crystals and clear AB crystals.  Papers are all from one of the Daisy & Dandilion xmas paper packs which I bought locally the other day, I went in and asked for Pink Christmas and they found these for me :)
