Pastel pink Christmas

This is a card for Clare's challenge for the Christmas card club - Clare asked us to make a Christmas card with pastel  colours and include a circle.

The backing paper is Papermania 'a Christmas carol' and the matching candelabra stamp is also Papermania. This was inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail white powder.

The larger pink shape was punched using a mini 8 snowflake punch and the inner shape was cut with a die (can't remember what it's called). The pieces of paper used were from my scraps box. The snowflakes are Anna Griffin and the sentiment is from  Craftwork cards.
