Pink Christmas

Sparkle hosts a Christmas Challenge every Sunday and this week the challenge was to make a pink Christmas card and Winter Wonderland was holding an open theme for their challenge.  I know, you all think I'm nuts for posting a Christmas card in April.  What can I say, I was inspired.  We send a silly amount of Christmas cards, so it's never too early for me to start.
This was such a fun card to make!  I used my favorite Penny Black snowflake for the background and I dug through the vast array of pink stuff I've been accumulating.  The ribbon and flower are from heaven-only-knows-where, but I really enjoy how they look on this card.
I jazzed up my antlered friend so she would be ready for a merry gathering. :)  Since this is basically a monochromatic card it also fits the Raise the Bar challenge that's going on this week.  They want you to use your favorite color on a card.  I'm not sure that pink is my favorite color, but then then again I'm not sure I have a favorite color.  Color really depends on my mood, the season, and it's purpose.  I really only like warm colors on walls and my friends and family joke about how much I dislike blue (you wouldn't know from the number of blue cards I make!!).

So, what is you favorite color right now?
