Pink Frosted Scandinavian Christmas

Okay, so I wanted to play along with some challenges today, and here's what I had to work with:

Less is More - Music/Dance inspired
52 CCT - Nordic Christmas
Just Us Girls - Warm Pink, Light Pink, and Ivory
Crazy for Challenges - sketch

So, I thought the big rounded shape in the sketch looked a little like a house, so I used the house stamp in the Scandinavian wishes set. I cut it out with Art Philosophy. My song inspiration is "Joy to the World." And I tried to leave some "white space" on the card. The chimney smoke is from Wonderland WOTG and the music notes are from Sweet Music. The colors I used are Hollyhock and Blush with Colonial White. The smoke is stamped in Desert Sand.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White
B&Ts: Frosted
Stamps: Scandinavian Wishes, Wonderland WOTG, Sweet Music
Ink: Desert Sand, Hollyhock, Blush
Other: Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
