In The Pink - with Impression Obsession and Lace

Here in Florida, 4 days before Christmas, all my flowers are in full bloom - mostly in pinks and purples, but also bright magenta and reds. It's only fitting that I put away my "winter stamps" like the ever green pines (which don't grow down here). With unseasonably warm weather (no complaints here), I was crying out for a break from snowflake and snowmen images.

Perfect Timing! Impression Obsession's "We are in the Pink Challenge" was just what I needed.



IO's gorgeous 3.25" Square Rose (F1343) stamp is so versatile in its uses, with wonderful detailing. This time Prisma Color pencils were used, with the Vintage Floral Punch from Martha Stewart and Walrus & Carpenter Embossing Folder by Couture Creations. I enjoyed shading the foliage with blues and pinks as well.

Wishes for a Merry Christmas to all my stamping friends. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Donna,
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving those sweet comments. I love your beautiful pink I/O card. I too was glad to get away from red/green for a bit. It's so nice that you have your flowers blooming in December. My hubby and I lived in Palm Bay FL for our first years of marriage and I loved the pastel southern christmas decorations with the greens and pinks. It's quite a change from our current New England decorations.

Donna, so gorgeous! Love the lace and the doily square, and the embossing, and the pearls, and the.... Oh, my, I just love it all! No flowers blooming here, even tho' I'm in CA. We've had too many freezing nights for even the roses to bloom, though they often do bloom year round. I'm going to come by and look at these roses as often as I can just to make up for it. :-D Have a wonderful Christmas, my friend.
