Christmas Challenge - Black Tie Fridays and Heart 2 Heart

Both Heart 2 Heart and Black Tie Fridays had a Christmas challenge this week.  Black Tie Fridays, a new challenge blog I just found out about, required a pink monochromatic theme with a touch of black.  Heart 2 Heart simply said anything Christmas was accepted for their first Christmas challenge of the year.  So this is what I came up with.

The Pear and Partridge paper pack has this sheet that is primarily pink, so I used smoothie cardstock as the card base.  The ornament image is from the October Stamp of the Month - Very Merry Christmas.  CTMH's new black tulle ribbon was one of the "touches of black" for Black Tie Fridays.  And what ornament would be complete without some bling - so bitty sparkles, bitty pearls and a rhinestone designer brad (all from CTMH) complete the look.

The card itself is a modified Swinging Z-Fold, so the greeting is stamped on the inside that isn't seen when the card is closed.  The greeting is also from Very Merry Christmas, the background stamp is from Merry and Bright (C1510) and I added one of the Pear and Partridge rub-ons.

I just found out that Black Tie Fridays selected my card for the "Casual Friday" award!!!! Thanks.
