Breastcancer Christmas card

For this week's sweetpea stamps card I used non traditional colours. I used pink, kind of a breastcancer awareness Christmas card. I really like this image called light of beautitude and thought it would work beautifully (no pun intended) as this type of card, making the candles symbolize hope. A perfect card for a survivour. It's not really a Christmas image, but I think it works well as it anyway.

I must apologize though for the not so great images. I accidentaly dropped my camera the other day and the display isn't working so I'm litterally photographing in the dark. It so silly because I dropped it from a low chair and it was in it's padded cozy. I've been much rougher on it through the years, travelling with it a lot, but never really dropped it I guess. It must have bumped just in the wrong spot. Hopefully I can get it repaired as I can't live without it. It's so easy to use and loves me right back - such a chick camera :)

I have coloured the image with promarkers and added glitterglue to the wings. The leaves are punched out using a qk die called holly leaves. I added three red pearls to mimic some of the pattern on the background paper. I folded the corner on the left bottom to balance out the holly decoration. It's a quite simple card, but I think it's well balanced and interesting.

I thought of a couple of challenges while making this card:

ABC-challenge - G is for glitter
Alphabet challenge - A is for angels and fairies
A spoon full of sugar - let's get punchy
In a sweetpea dream - things with wings
Midnight madness - sketch
One stop craft - anything goes
Papertake weekly - sparkly and bright
Secret crafter - anything that flies
Simon says stamp - punch 'em
Stamp challenges - something with pink
Stamp with fun - all that can fly
