Pink Christmas Card For Stampin For The Weekend

Hi everyone!
It’s time for a new challenge over at Stampin For The Weekend!
The theme for this fortnight’s challenge is………
We would like to see any kind of Christmas card.
Our sponsor for this week is Simon Says Stamp who is offering one lucky winner a $20 voucher.
Here is my card:
I decided to make a pink Christmas card and give it to my ballet teacher.
My ballet teacher is an older lady and I really love her, since I’ve been doing ballet with her since I was 5 years old. She loves pastel colours!
I used a Whiff Of Joy Stamp called Betty Mouse with Candycane and coloured her with the following Copics:
E35, E33 and E53 - For the mouse’s skin 
R20, R21 and E00 - For the mouse’s ears and tails
RV34 and RV13 - For the mouse’s pink hat, skirt, nose, under her foot and the bow on the sugar cane.
Y11 and Y00 - For her yellow top
B02 and B000 - For the bow ribbon around her waist and on the sugar cane.
G14 and G12 - For on the sugar cane
W3 - For a shadow around the image
A glitter pen - For a sparkle on the image
I finished the image off by adding 4 little pink pearls as a neckless.
I added some ribbon - a wide light pink ribbon and a narrower, softer, see-through ribbon on top, with a bow. I think it really fits with the soft pastel paper.

I distressed everything nice and thick to make it stand out more and finished the card off with a few dark pink pearls.

Please hop over the Stampin For The Weekend and see if you can take part in our fortnightly crafting challenge.
