A Christmas Kiss

Okay, this is a TOTALLY different kind of Christmas card for me. First, there are no snowmen. GASP! Second, the image doesn't exactly say "Christmas" to me and third, the totally non traditional Christmas colors. That's one thing I really like about challenges...you try new things and put things together in ways that you might not have thought of yourself.
The challenge this week at ABC Christmas challenge was K for kiss. TOUGH ONE! I don't have any snowmen kissing or anyone under the mistletoe. This image is from Simple Inger.
Photobucket
It's technically a Valentine's image but I thought it could also be used for Christmas. :)
Challenges:
ABC Christmas: K for kiss (optional shaped card)
Treehouse: pink, skyblue, brown and cream
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: sketch
Digi Doodles Shop: glitter and glitz (glittered her hair, the boy's scarf and the rose)
Bah Humbug: Ribbon

  14. oh I quite agree it's a gorgeous stamp and so right for Christmas too. If you had a mistletoe stamp you could hang that above them - wouldn't that be cute.
    Love your card and thanks for joining us again.
