Color Hues #6 Pink for Christmas!

 Hi and welcome to Color Hues Challenge #6!  We are asking you to use pink and brown as your colors today, isn't that lovely? I have a confession. I've never used this combo. Ever. At all. That's what makes card challenges so fun!!

I was already thinking of Pink for Christmas, but when I saw the Pinkfresh Studio stamp and die called Pop Out Folk Christmas I was ready to go!

I can't tell you how delightful this creative and versatile set is to work with. I have plenty more ideas for using it! 

For today's card, I stamped using brown ink on several colors of card stock, then die cut the images and played with positioning them on the card. I added markings in white gel pen on the deer, and used Nuvo pink glitter drops to accent some of the berries. 

I die cut the deer also out of foam so the dimension helps them stand out. I added a shadow on the doves by layering a white image over the brown.

Please be sure to visit the challenge HERE to see inspiration from the fabulous team! You will not believe the gorgeous-ness! Can't wait to see what you make! 

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Cindy, I love this card! I'm a huge fan of Pinkfresh, but passed on this stamp and regret it for lots of reasons. You just gave me another one.

This is stunning! I love the color combo and the design. I would have a hard time giving this one away and would display it on my mantle.

I had to go look up the stamp set to see why they call this "pop out", and I see that it's a brilliant idea. Someone is always coming up with new and enticing products. So cute! The pink and brown is perfect for your Christmas card, Cindy! I can't help but think of candy. Gosh, I love this!
