♥PINK♥ xmas!

If you've played along with us in other years, you may already know that at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we devote the first theme of each October to making pink holiday cards as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that for each card that gets linked up, we each donate two dollars to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. There are really no rules for this challenge other than the fact that each card has to be newly made, it has to have a winter holiday theme and it has to feature PINK prominently. Does your whole card have to be pink? Certainly not. Can you combine other colors with the pink? Of course! Should you have more pink than say two or three baubles on your green tree set against a snowy white background? Well, yeah... that'd be good. :) But other than that, we'll leave it to you to decide how much pink, what shade, and how to employ it!

We're not generally huge on self-promotion at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ but this cause is near and dear to our hearts and we'd love to get GREAT participation, so be sure to tell all your cardmaking friends, and feel free to share the graphic and our link on your blog or social media. But now let's get right to the cardmaking! Here's what we've made this week:

Somewhat unusually for me, I not only used products which are nearly all from the same collection, I actually chose and purchased the collection specifically with Pink Xmas in mind. So you can see that my card has a lot of elements from "Sugar Plum" by My Mind's Eye, including patterned paper, a sentiment sticker and some cardstock diecuts. All of these are living happily together in a sort of landscape, completely with white glitter paper snow, obviously!

Be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see Stephanie's luscious pink card and get started planning your own!


  1. I'm not usually a non-traditional Christmas color gal, but this is so darling. Love it.

  2. This is very sweet and I love the colours. x
