Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas II

The second card I did for the Jingle Belles Pink Christmas challenge was a little labor intensive but fun too!  I used a recently purchase Memory Box die - Large Ringlets - and first used it on Whisper White.  Then I went through my cardstock and picked out all the shades of pink that I had, from the lightest Pink Pirouette to Rose Red.  I used the die on all of those colors and then popped out the different pink bubbles and added them to the white framework.  Then I added the bubbles and frame to a panel of Pink Pirouette and layered that onto the Wild Wasabi card base.  How did all those pieces stay put?  Packing tape on the back.

The trees are from SU's Festival of Trees and I used Wild Wasabi and Regal Rose Ink on them.  I added some of the leftover stars from the first card to one of the trees just for a little sparkle.  The sentiment - be merry - is another Essentials by Ellen die, Merry and Bright in Wild Wasabi. 

Hmmm, now that I've blown up these trees in the picture, I think I'll go back and add a little sparkle to the center of the pink flowers on that tree.  

So now it's time to go and check out all the lovely pinkiness that the Jingle Belles have to offer this week.  And remember, anyone can participate in these challenges and if you do make a card and post it, you'll be supporting breast cancer research through the generosity of the Jingle Belle hostesses.
