Peace in Dusky Pink

Another non-challenge card and there was no reason to create this apart from practicing my brayering. If I carry on like this I'll have lots of cards ready for Christmas, eh? Bet I don't! It all starts off well at the beginning of the year and then rapidly goes downhill as soon as the weather starts to get warmer.I don't claim that this design is my idea. I saw Barbara Grey do something really similar, if not the same (only hers would have been much better than mine), on Create and Craft in November or December last year. When I saw her cards I just knew I had to get these stamps for my 2011 Christmas cards.

The camera has made the ink on these look a little dark. In real life it's a lovely dusky pink colour.

After I took the picture, I noticed that I'd caught the gold on the right hand side of the central panel. That's fixed now because I went back over it with the gold pen I'd used to create that outline in the first place.

Thanks so much for looking,
Sharon xx
