Think Pink.

Jingle Belles
are asking for  Pink Christmas cards
to promote Breast Cancer Week.
They are donating $4 for each card entered.
I found several other challenges too
asking for Think Pink
so I had a sort through my digi papers
and came up with this card.
Pretty CAS for me.
Design paper is by Bearly Mine from their
'Pastel Christmas Collection'
I printed off using 160gsm cardstock
and then adhered to cardboard packaging for extra stability.
I used double sided tape around the front edges,
peeled off and dipped each side in SU extra fine  glitter.
This gave me a lovely neat sparkly border.
I then matted onto a white base card.
The sentiment is my Britannia dies which I cut out
3 times each and glued together.
Using pva glue I covered the fronts and dipped in more
of the glitter.
When dry I used the pva glue again to stick to the card front.
Silver gem for the letter i and the card was complete.
