Pink christmas cards for Breast Cancer

Yesterday i went to the Colemans warehouse in Rushden, where they had a special charity day and a competition whereby you had to make a pink christmas card. The prize was £50 worth of craft goodies so i thought i'd give it a go and it was for a good cause too. Any way i made 4 cards but nly entered the first 3 as i wasn't very pleased with the fourth one.

The first card is a Penny Black stamp which i've coloured with H2O's. I've used DCWV papers and just some spare pink glitter paper i had in my stash. To make it stand out i've added pink glitter around the edges.

The stamp on this one is from Crafty Individuals. I've used a dark pink ink on pink paper to give a different effect. The happy Christmas text is a HOTP stamp

This one is an embossed image. I've used shrink plastic to draw the breast cancer ribbon on and then coloured it in pink before shrinking it. I then added them onto the tree to make them look like decorations.
And the last one is quite plain and i didn't like the choice of ribbon so i didn't enter it. The stamp is a HOTP one. I've used a little pink star gem at the top of the tree for some texture.
