UK crafters thread challenge- shocking pink and lime green!!

Hello peeps!!!!!!!
well, the weather here today is blurgh!!!!!!! grey,rainy,dull,blurgh!!! so I was quite happy to do my uk crafters thread challege. This week it was to use shocking pink and lime green, they are not colours I have used before so this was a little bit like stepping out of my comfortable colours box!!!! lol!!!!! I had a really nice download called flirty snowflakes from Karen's blog that i love to visit, you should go there she is awesome.
I cuttlebugged the pink with snowflakes and the green with swiss dots to make it a bit more christmassy. I left a couple of the swirly bits from the green on and they just overlapped the pink nicely and I popped a bit of green bling on the ends of them.
I layered up the christmas tree and popped some pink bling on it for baubles ( it was nice to do as there were little baubles printed on there already!! ) and used my scalloped oval and oval punch that I got from rosy again ( oooooh i love,love,love it!!!! if you haven't got it you NEED it!!!!! lol!!!!!)
I did a little bit of pink metallic thread stitching and popped the sentiment on my ovals with my computer!!! the sentiment is part of that lovely 'have yourself a merry little christmas' song!! I decided it was a good one because it was such a bright card!!!!!!!!
Be warned guys, it is crafty night tomorrow night and sam will be bringing more images for the boutique and Ihave had some really cute ideas too!!!!!
