Pink Christmas

Pink isn't the first colour you'd think of for Christmas is it?
Yet that is an option for the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week, to make either a pink & white or a purple & white christmas card.
Here's mine...

The pink cardstock has been stamped with snowflakes using white ink. I then sponged around the edges to distress them using the same white ink. The white card base has been sponged/distressed with pink ink.
I used my eyelet border punch to make the pretty scalloped strop across the top which has also been sponged.
The image is of course by Whiff of Joy, and has been coloured with ProMarkers. Main colours used are caramel/buttercup for Henry, ice grey 5/warm grey 1 for his lady friend, and rose pink/blossom for the candy cane.
The bauble is simply 2 circles punched from pale pink card, one of them being sponged in a darker shade of pink, the other punched with my nellie snellen stamen punch and layered ontop of the sponged circle. Then I added a crystal gem to the centre and doodled with my glitter gel pen. The top of the bauble is just scraps of silver card. I added a pink organza bow to finish.
The sentiment is from a Dovecraft clear stamp set.

I'd like to also enter this card into the following challenges:

Whiff of Joy challenges, who want us to distress our entries, I distressed with ink.

Crafty Catz, who want us to make something inspired by a nursery rhyme or song, my sentiment chose the song 'have yourself a merry little christmas' from the musical Meet me in St. Louis

Totally Gorjuss, who are celebrating their first birthday (Happy birthday TG!), want us to use the colour pink this week.

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your day xx
