Think Christmas in pink

Edit 8/10:
I could not leave the card it was yesterday. It was too much blue and looked unfinished. I didn't get the challenges I wanted and you know how much I love challenges. I really didn't like the card, but I didn't have the time or energy to fight with it any longer ;) I left it overnight so it could think how badly it behaved and maybe be good today. I wasn't that lucky, but at least it improved and I got all the challenges I wanted into it and I'm still quite proud of the colouring. So here's the new card:

The challenges I'm entering are:

Alice in wonderland - text in a nonsense way
Allsorts - holiday
Bunny Zoe's - sketch
(Diecut dreams Christmas club - glitter, ribbons and gems) I missed the dedline though
Drunken stampers - think pink
I love promarkers - think pink
Magnolia stamp lovers - lace (The edge is lace, but a tiny piece of lace fabric shows just beneath the circle)
Stamp and create - Breastcancer/pink
The cuttlebug spot - pink and the theme strength, love, hope, faith
(Totally Tilda - glitter and sparkle (I think I missed the deadline on this one too)

Phew, that's it. Now I'm off to clean that huge mess I made picking out everything I had. Or maybe I'll do that later...Back before the end of the weekend with a sweetpea card. Thanks for stopping by (and leaving me some love, please?)

I've been working all day on my pink magnolia card and it's being very naughty to me. I'm struggling to finish it. I wanted it to be all in pink, but it was too much so I had to break it off with some other colour. But now I see there is too much blue. Hmm, I'll see if I can solve it somehow.

I made it with a couple of challenges in mind. First:

Just magnolia - anything goes

I think your card is perfect. It is so funny when you don't like a card but in the morning it looks great. Nice job.
