Pretty In Pink

I made this Christmas card using Bigsby In Wreath for the pretty in pink challenges at Karen's Doodles and Aly's Sunday Challenge. The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at The Sweet Stop. Cute Card Thursday's challenge is called material girl. The material that I used on my card is the pink with white dots ribbon from offray and the pink ribbon bow. Pile it on is looking for layers.

The challenge at Tuesday Taggers is something to do with a book and the challenge at Cupcake Craft is books and stories. For these two challenges I used the theme of the Christmas story, The Night Before Christmas. "Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse...."

A Spoonfull Of Sugar's challenge is to use animals. Stamp, Scrap & Doodles is a Christmas challenge. Stamp Something asked us to use something cute. And of course I had to use Bigsby laying in this wreath. How cute is that!? The challenges at both Cowgirls Sunday Stampen & Bee Crafty are anything goes.
