One more Christmas version – this one features Sweet Sugarplum accents.  Christmas cards with pink have a great vintage feeling to them – a popular look for Christmas cards in the 1950's and 60's.  It is a refreshing change from the traditional red and green!

I added a touch of color to the snowflakes with a blender pen and a bit ink from the lid of the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad.

I did the same with the Soft Sky version but used the Soft Sky ink pad.

The "bling" for the center of the bells on all of the card versions comes from the Fancy Frost Sequins which has Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum, and white gold sequins.  I attached the sequin with a glue dot.  The ribbon for all three cards came from the 2 pack 3/8" Glitter Ribbon Combo pack which comes with one roll of silver and one roll of Sweet Sugarplum.
