A very Pink Girlie christmas

Hello fellow bloggers, well I have been trying to get on with my family cards for christmas and have finally made a start. I have made 2 of these cards for the little girls who love pink!

I started off with pearl card with has a lovely sheen on it, I then diecut a teddy this is the 'boo the bear' fab when made with other colours. I chalked him in a baby pink although from the photo it is hard to tell. I then finished with lots of glamour dust and lots of glossy accents it almost looks like shiny plastic when in the light. I made it all 3d by adding foam pads where needed. The ribbon is organza from my hoards of ribbon stash! the snowflake is layered and of course the fab mariannes and I have added a brad and rhinestone spacer which then has the chain attached to the rear and a snowflake charm to finish.

I added all the sentiment on the pc through my virtual card in publisher and it also has like a watermarked background with a hint of snowflakes. The stars are from the xcut punch which cuts thick cardstock like a dream.

Well thats all for now. I have just ordered some Tilda papers so am waiting for them to arrive.
I have a compressor and airgun arriving shortly this week so I can have a play with airbrushing with my copics so will make a post on those. I was going to do a comparison between the stamping cardstock, promarkers and copics soon i may even make a video if I can figure out how to put it all together.
hugs to you all
