Holiday Greetings, Secret TIlda!

Hello my crafty blogging friends! I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, mine was yummy! Here's my card for Just Magnolia, this week is a sketch by Donalda. I had a lot of fun with this sketch I hope you will join us over at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog .

I tried something a little different with my coloring. Instead of going for the dark and in depth look I went for soft and subtle. What do you think? I like it but I think I like the dark detailed better. I love doing the pink Holiday cards. If the print on the paper was different it could pass for a Valentines card LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend.
