Christmas card club - pink + another colour

Yes, it's another Christmas card - getting quite a collection in my box now - think I've made about 60 so far this year.

This is for Sylvie's challenge for the Christmas Card gang - you can see who's in it on my sidebar - a group of crafters who are getting ahead with Christmas cards by challenging one another every other week.

So Sylvie challenged us to use pink and one other colour.

I based my card on the sketch for Double Dutch 67:

The green background paper on the pink card blank is Serif picnic in the park (a magazine freebie) and the patterned paper used for the squares is from K & Co secret Santa collection. I've used one of my favourite nesties for the scalloped circle, using another inside it to take away the inside circle. The sentiment was in a QVC kit either the Christmas before last or the year before (time goes so quickly!).

I used the colour combo for Picture perfect creations 57:

I'm also linking this for:

Crafty Ho's: pink, black (the text) and a splash of green
Cupcake: something beginning with C - Christmas
Paper romance: use your favourite die (scalloped circle nestie)
Wags n whiskers 53: use die or punch
Annabelle: say it with squares
Simply create 43: what did you say - sayings that either mums would say or someone else may say about or to mums
Secret crafter Saturday 133: dust off your stash - the sentiment panel has been in my box for at least eighteen months and possibly longer
Craft your passion 56: anything goes
Pear tree 47: free for all
Pollycraft 91: anything goes
Papertake weekly: anything goes
Top tip Tuessday 32: open challenge
Iris' spot 18: anything goes
