Deck the Halls

 Just got back from a day of shopping with my kids.  My daughter came in from Seattle yesterday and brought the crummy weather with her.  It has rained most of the day and is pretty darn cold for us here in Arizona.  I think it got to be around 46 deg.  So back to card making.  I decided to use inspiration from Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Sweet Christmas Challenge.  I used this picture they posted as part of my inspiration on the coloring and the sparkle of my Christmas Balls.  It was also very close to Off The Wall Craftiness Challenge #37.  Look at these colors they are challenging us to use this week. 
So with all this pink floating around I created my Deck the Halls card. 

My card will work perfect for the Paper Romance Challenge #29 - The Backwards Color Challenge!  Don't use Red or Green.  I did not do that.  I hope with all this pink it still looks like a Christmas card.  The stamp is just the single ball which I stamped 3 xs and cut out.  The stamp is by Hero Arts called Flourish Ornament.  There is soooo much that can be done with just this one stamp.  I used my glue pen and traced around the swirls and then glittered them, added some star emblis and used the swirl paperclips to hang them.  I used pop dots to hold them in place and give them dimension.  At the bottom of the card that is a rub on that I found in my stash and The Little Red Wagon Challenge #59 asked us to use Rub Ons this week so it all worked out perfect.    Since the whole card is pinkish I think it fits in at the Caardvarks Final Challenge - monochromatic card and Incy Wincy Design Challenge #72 - Use non Traditional colors. 

Well on to the next one.  Better go start the coffee cuz it's going to be a late nite.  hehehe.
