Merry Christmas It's a Challenge

 I thought this was an unusual colour combo for a holiday card...but figured that I  would try my hand at it anyway...I liked the card...but not convinced that this would be the first choice of colours I'd use for my Christmas cards...lol...but I would sure use it for other occasions. 

 
 
 
At the last minute I added this silver metallic ribbon...the card had looked very plain...much happier with it now.
 

 
 
I layered the Merry Christmas sentiment so that it would stand out.
 

 
 
This is the recipe:
 
Stamp set: teeny tiny wishes.
*****
Card stock: pretty in pink...whisper white...brushed silver...and white printer paper.
*****
Ink: pretty in pink.
*****
Punches: word window...key tag...2X3 Oval...rectangle dies...and ornament folder.
*****
Additional supplies: silver bells dew drops...pink mix discs...crystal effects...snail...stampin' dimensionals...sticky strip...big shot...simply scored...fiskar...and silver metallic ribbon.
