Magical Pink Christmas #91

I made this card earlier this week, and with everything going on, I am finally posting it now.  And it would make better sense to post it tomorrow, so the post would be on a separate day.  However, the challenge I made this card for closes at the end of today.  Uhg.
The wonderful folks over @ the Shabby Tea Room, have this perfect challenge: The Magic of Christmas.  Ok, the requirements are: pink, neutral, snowflake, flower, and gold.  The perfect colors for vintage!

Here is their inspirational photo:


Here is my card:


This card was actually fun to make.  The Christmas ornament pattern paper came from my stash.  It is probably around 3 yrs old.    I thought that it was the perfect pattern for this challenge.  The ornaments are actually embossed on the paper.  The little postcard, I actually made.  I first cut a piece of vanilla card stock to the size I needed.  I then added all the stamps.  It's a collection of three different stamp set (but only two companies).  I added the string of pearls to give it a feminine touch.  
The paper flower was white originally, but it didn't look like it was suppose to be there.  So, I took out my Blushing Bride smooch spray and gave it some color - pink!  The tiny tag was hand stamped and adhered to a pink button with some linen thread.  Which lays on top of a gold glitter snowflake!

For the 'Noel' tag, I first stamped the verse in Soft Suede classic ink, and then heat embossed the snowflakes.  I adhered the tag with some foam tape to give it some height off the card front.  The corset is from a new Stampin' Up! stamp set that is due out next month.  (a little sneak peak.)  I used my postage stamp scissors to create the fun border around that matt.  
I added one of my all time favorite crochet trims to the bottom of the card.  I layered this cute sewn ribbon on top of the crochet trim.  I thought the polka dot pattern paper looked vintage with the softness of the crochet trim and the silky-ness of the sewn satin ribbon.
All the edges were distressed to help with an aged look and feel.  Thank you for stopping by!
