Twas the Night Before Christmas... Embellish Challenge Style!

So when I was little, "Twas the Night Before Christmas" was always one of my favorite children's stories during the holidays.  I can probably still recite it from memory!!!  Ever since I got Lawn Fawn's "Critters in the Snow" I imagined making a card and making reindeer to fly through the sky!  I finally decided to go for it when I saw the current Embellish Holidays Color Challenge!  The challenge was to make a holiday card with some non-traditional colors:
 Now, the red, green and brown made sense for reindeer and my sentiment, but for the life of me I wasn't sure what to do with the pink!  Then it hit me: make the snow pink!  Since it's a light pink, I thought it would add a fun, feminine touch to the card!  Here's how it turned out:
Didn't this card turn out fun?  I loved the baker's twine for a touch of red, and then green sentiment!  I also just bought this Versamagic ink, and I absolutely love it!  By far, it's the nicest chalk ink I've used!  =)

So I counted yesterday, and I'm almost up to 50 Christmas cards... WOO HOO! =)  I only need about 60 to be finished for this year!  =)  Don't worry, I still have a LOT of tags to make so the holiday cheer will keep flowing!!!

Ok readers, I hope to have more to post this week!  It's a busy busy week here at my house, and I want to get a few more things made but we will see how the week goes!  Have a lovely day!  =)
