Pink Christmas

It's time for a challenge for the Christmas Card Club and Carol has chosen the theme: 'pretty in pink'. I've used some papers and silver mirror card that were in my Christmas offcuts box along with a Kanban topper from a kit bought long ago. I can remember a time when I used fibres, but haven't done so for ages, but I dug out this pink sparkly eyelash one that was just right for the sketch I wanted to use (I thought of using twine, but I didn't have any pink).

I based the card on the sketch given for Deconstructed 127:

The photo had to be taken with flash - I either had to settle for this or have one that reflected on all the silver and some of it then looked gold instead - will perhaps get a better photo in daylight. The sentiment oval looks very dull here, but is bright in real life.
