Black and white baubles with a hint of glittery pink

For this fortnight's theme for the Christmas Card Club, Carol has chosen 'ribbon and lace (real or punched'. The Christmas Card Club is a group of crafters who set challenges for one another every other week to help us get ahead with making Christmas cards throughout year. The list of those in the CCC are in my sidebar - if you would like to join us, please contact one of us.

I've used the large Papermania 'bauble decoration' stamp, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail black powder (unfortunately, you only get a hint of the gloss of the embossing on the photo).

The punched black lace is a Martha Stewart punch with a glittered hot pink ribbon added above it.

This is also for Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge for week 19: baubles.

And inspired by the photo inspiration challenge on Winter wonderland:

This is also for:

Hiding in my craftroom NSD 1: black & white +1 (this is the first of five challenges to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day
Bunny Zoe 23: ribbon or twine
House of Gilli 32: oh pretty - ribbon and sparkles
Lexi 64: lace and ribbon
Deep ocean 24: use punches/dies
Oldie but a goodie: die cuts and punches - this stamp is a couple of years old
Willow sketchie: sketch and/or die cuts and/or punches
