Flourishes and Midnight Madness Christmas

I made this very white and pale pink card for the Winter white and the flower but not a poinsettia challenges for Flourishes.    The DT have some gorgeous creations on their blog for your inspiration so check them out.  The sketch is from Priscilla's midnight madness 84.  They have all the December sketch's up for us this month so we can make them ahead of time which is wonderful!!! The DT on Midnight madness are always over the top on creativity so make sure you stop over there also.  I used the beauitful paper white flowers from Flourishes, added a touch of pale pink and some green for the stems, the centers of the flowers have some cotton candy pink stickles and the outer edges are frosted lace stickles.  Gold leafing pen, I took a very pale pink chalk ink pad and touched lightly over the dot background and snowflakes just for hint of pink, lots of glittered pearls and gems from Michaels. The soft pink ribbon is silk and 1/2 inch wide.
