A Pink Christmas

I've had a secret...I've kept IT quiet and didn't say anything until now. I didn't want to announce IT without having something to show for it.  What is the IT?  It's that I'm a CUTIE PIE!!!  I was invited to join The Cutie Pie Design Team and am thrilled to pieces to be on the Team!

This is my first card as a member of the Team. The challenge this month at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog is PRETTY IN PINK. I love the color pink and pink winter cards are a favorite of mine. There are so many shades of pink, and all so pretty, so this challenge was super easy! I used an image from one of our sponsors, Crafty Sentiments.

 
 
I colored my image with Copics and the fur on her ear muffs and hand muff are glittered with Studio G glitter. The snow on the ground is chunky glitter by Darice. I used a Marianne embossing die around my image and used white Stampin' Up ink and then Creations Unlim Embossing Snowdrift embossing powder on the raised areas. The sentiment is a die from the same Marianne set and I used a rub on sentiment by Pebbles.
 
My snowflake dies are by Memory Box and I inked them with pink ink then embossed them with the same embossing powder. The pink poinsettias are from I Am Roses and the mittens in the bottom left corner are a die by Joy and embossed with the glittery embossing powder, too. I tied a bow with a bit of embroidery floss and glued it on. I used a set of Stampin' Up snowflakes dies for my background paper and used Stampin' Up Winter White embossing powder on them. I used a metal mitten brad in the middle of my pink seam binding bow. My jewels are from Queen & Co.
