It's a Pink Christmas!!!

Hey crafty friends!!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!!

I am so honored to be a part of a Pink Christmas over at Jingle Belles!!
Here is a little bit of information about what it is all about:

What is it? 
A challenge to make and link *PINK* holiday cards in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Where is it?

Whom does it benefit?
Lauren and Stephanie (aka the Jingle Belles) are each donating $2 per linked up card to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

How many cards can I link?
As many as you want to, there's no limit!

What if I don't celebrate Christmas?
You're welcome to make pink Hanukkah, pink Solstice, pink Kwanzaa or pink New Year cards instead.

Does my card have to be ALL pink?
Nope! But it should be noticeably pink, so there should be more than, say, the blush on Mrs. Claus' cheeks, if you see what we mean?

What's with the "(GAH!)"?
Our friend and fellow papercrafting blogger, Leslie Hanna (aka the Crooked Stamper) passed away last December. Each year, Leslie was one of the most enthusiastic supporters of this event... which was pretty cool, seeing as how she really REALLY did not like the color pink, at all. A fact she wrote about quite hilariously on many occasions. So it's a bit of a tribute, and a way to have her with us in spirit!

Please join us to Think Pink and Link Pink at Jingle Belles!

How cool right?? 
Thank you Lauren for allowing me to be a part of this!!
When I started brainstorming for my project, for some reason my brain kept leaning towards a shimmery card with pink snowflakes. haha! So here is what I ended up creating:

I love watching snowflakes fall, especially the light airy ones. Almost looks like they are dancing in a way. I thought I would give try making a spinner card with the snowflake that spins when the card is opened. I used some striped patterned paper and adhered it my card base with some temporary adhesive. I ran it through my die cut machine with a circle die to create the opening. I ran some white thread down the center of my circle and permanently attached the patterned paper to my card base being careful to line up the circle openings together. I die cut my snowflake out of some pink glitter cardstock twice. I adhered them together, sandwiching the string in between the two pieces. I finished off my card by adding a white glitter circle frame, my greeting and some sequins. I think it turned out so pretty! 

I hope you will join in the challenge over at Jingle Belles and make a pink holiday card to support a great cause! Let's make blogland PINK and help raise some money for research to find a cure!!
