nontraditional colors adventure

It must be Breast Cancer Awareness month - October - my Hungry Howie's pizza came in a pink box and the lovely Jingle Belles are celebrating their Third Annual Pink Christmas ... for the Cure!   At 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, Danielle requested no red or green, and Christmas Card Challenges specified pink, brown, and white; Freshly Made Sketches provided just the right design: 

 stamp set - Warmth & Wonder (hostess); ink - Baked Brown Sugar, Pretty in Pink (retired); card stock - Baked Brown Sugar, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White; designer series paper - Pink Pirouette (retired design); Dazzling Details, Stampin' sponge, Stamp-a-majig

And in spite of my general  dislike of pink, I like it!  It's my third pink-based Christmas card so far this year, and the last one was showcased last week at Jingle Belles, so I'm even turning pink - thanks, ladies!

So pretty Kathe - I love pink on Christmas cards anyway so no need to sway me on the issue and your card is a total winner in my book! You nailed this perfectly considering you're not a pink fan - you should carry on confidently using pink on your cards!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at 52 {C}CT! Ruth x
