Pretty Pink Pomegranates

This is for today's Color Challenge on SCS, Pretty Pink Pomegranates. . .to use Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate and Old Olive. I thought this made a very festive color combo, so I decided to make a Christmas card. I love my little Merry & Bright set from the SU Holiday Mini catalog. I went with the tree image this time instead of the snowman. Next I'll have to use the reindeer! :) I used the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder on the card base and added some brads for ornaments on the tree. Other than that, I think this is pretty self-explanatory. The card went very quickly too! That is a very good thing when it comes to Christmas cards! I just might have to use this for my cards this year! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Merry & Bright; Paper- Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, DCWV Olive; Ink- Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive; Accessories- blender pen, duo satin ribbon by Darice, horizontal slot punch, paper piercer, 1", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Cuttlebug Snowflake folder, Making Memories brads, Sakura Stardust gel pen.
