Unconventional Holiday Colors

December's Technique Challenge over at Club Scrap is to create a holiday project using unconventional holiday colors and a little sparkle. I LOVE this idea! I found this freeing to make some Christmas cards in colors other than red and green. So I went with pink!  Love me some pink!
I stamped three Shades of Winter snowflake stamps in bright colors on a raised panel. Added sparkle by using some iridescent snowflakes topped with Nuvo glitter drops. I felt it needed just a little bit more sparkle to tone down the colors and the Dazzles snowflake stickers were just the thing.
I couldn't just stop at one card. When I was thumbing through my binder of holiday stamps I came across this tree stamp from Watercolor Christmas.  Adding pearls just seemed like the right embellishment. In pink, of course. The glitz is a little more subtle on this card. The embossed background paper is metallic and a gold sequin star was used to top the tree. (I've been anxiously waiting to use this recently purchased embossing folder.)
Club Scrap papers, ribbon and stamp. Queen&Co. pearls. Carta Bella embossing folder. 
Now it’s your turn . . . pull out a kit at random and make an unconventional, non-traditional holiday card . . . and don’t forget to add a bit of glitz. Be sure to link your creation to the Linky Party for a chance to receive a Club Scrap gift certificate!

I've been honored by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and named the newest Queen of Snark (which is shocking for some of you).  This title comes with the honor of being the guest designer for the new Farm challenge. I wanted to create a farm feel to the whole card right down to the embellishments.  I think chicken wire, feathers and twine should do it:) Club Scrap papers, ribbon and stamps. Impression Obsession background stamp. Darice embossing folder. Recollections feathers.  Inside of card: A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you're half cracked.

I hope you join us over at the Sisterhood and share your farm creations.
