Oooh, the first Christmas card!

Evening all! This is a quick post to show you this card I made over the weekend. We're off out for dinner soon, to La Tasca (we've got one of those discount vouchers you print off!) to celebrate monday being over!
This is the first Chistmas card of 2011, I managed to not have too much of a rush last year so hopefully I'll be able to get organised again!
My card is for a new challenge in blog land, Less is More, I love the clean and simple look, whether I pull it off or not is another matter! The challenge is to use Pink, Black and White with lots of space. I hope the fact that I've used pink glitter paper doesn't undo it! It's also for this weeks ABC Christmas Challenge which is also Clean and Simple, but with this sketch, and this weeks Winter Wonderland which is Stars. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!
