MPS Christmas Card Challenge

Finally!  I can post a card!  This has been a crazy day with blogger.  I decided to play along with a few challenges for World Card Making Day and I finishing them up now.  Robyn @ My Pink Stamper has a challenge to make a Christmas card.  Can you believe we're already in October?  Christmas is just around the corner.  I am determined to get my cards all done by November, so this was a perfect time to start on them.  

I decided to make a card using non-traditional Christmas colors.  I sold my big Christmas tree in the garage sale last year with the intention of buying a new one when we move into a different house.  Now, all I have is a smaller pink tree my dad bought me a few years ago, so that will be our tree this year.  (LOVE IT!!!!)  So, I decided to do a pink tree on my card.  Well, that and because pink is the best, obviously.  The tree is from Holiday Cakes.

The scallop square is from Elegant Edges (my new FAVE cart - so glad I broke down and bought it).  The stamp is from Hobby Lobby and although it doesn't look like it in the pic, it's actually stamped in lime green to match the paper.  I added some bling just to make it sparkle.

This card was super simple, but I love the colors.  I am going to try to make 1-2 cards per week so I'm ready when Christmas comes. Have you started on your holiday cards yet?
