Pink Snowflakes

VLV Nov Week 3

The snowflakes keep falling here and today's is pink!  Found this delicious snowflake paper by Echo Park at my local scrap booking store and just fell in love with it.  A great set of non-traditional colours for a Christmas card and I obliged LOL!

Paired it with this cute Christmas tree from Verve's Holiday Greetings set.  Coloured it with Twinkling H2Os and just had to pull out the hot pink colour from the patterned paper and make a snowflake out of that colour.  Had me thinking, I'm sure glad snow isn't this colour, but sure like it on the card :)  That being said, I'm entering this card in the Keen on Neon in teh Moxi Fab World contest.

All of the November Verve sketches are done - yeah!  My out door Christmas lights are up - yeah!  We have chocolate chip cookies in the house compliments of my daughter - yeah! And, my Christmas letter is well on it's way to being done - yeah!  Life is good - double yeah!

Very pretty, Marisa! I am with you...glad snowflakes aren't pink. Can you imagine the ground covered with that color? Just would't be right. But, it looks great on your card.

Hi Marisa! Thanks for linking this up to the Keen on Neon challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I had a bit of a problem with Mr. Linky after you uploaded your project and had to change some things which made me lose yours. Could you link it up once again? Thanks so much! :)
