Merry Christmas - shades of pink

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend. A Christmas card today that I can share as it's already been received by my friend (I know, I'm never usually this organised :D). I've coloured Christmas Tilda with cat using distress and watercolour markers, faux stitched the edges, added stickles to the edge of the paper then mounted onto pink Bazzil card. I'm not sure of the name of this card design or where it orignated but thank you  to whoever it belongs to, it's a great design. 

 I've used pink glitter card and Pion paper to decorate the card base, used the same paper to make the Magnolia DooHickey pointsettias and also cut the DooHickey mistletoe die from the pink card. Everything is edged with vintage photo distress ink to finish off.

I've used shades of pink for my card so I can enter into the monochrome challenge at Marvellous Magnolias
at Magnolia-liscious challenge there's a pink Christmas challenge with this photo for inspiration

This week at Tilda's Town the challenge is 'celebrate Christmas' so I'm entering that one too.
Enjoy your day.
