Pink and Blue Presents

I love using traditional colours on my Christmas cards, but this week's Merry Monday challenge was a colour combo of light blue, dark blue and pink. Paired with the Between The Folds challenge of Glitter and Bling, I set to work to create a Christmas card out of my comfort zone!

I started off by placing this cute word paper as the background of my card, and I then layered up some Sapphire card, Aqua Shimmer Trim, Flamingo Dots and a sticker towards the bottom of the card. The sentiment was stamped onto the frame sticker using a retired Christmas set and Sapphire ink.

To create the presents, I ran some of the Sapphire card through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder, then cut three squares. these were topped off with some Pink Twine and a Navy satin bow.

I quite like the end result- what do you think?
