The Paper Players: Monochromatic Card

I decided to participate in The Paper Players challenge, you can see it here. They asked that we create a monochromatic card, in the color's of our choice. I chose pink, because I also wanted to participate in a challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. They asked for us to create a pink Holiday card. Of course I chose Christmas! Since it is my favorite time of year. Contrary to popular belief, I think Christmas starts on Halloween. It does, doesn't it!? :)

I sponged Melon Mambo, on the piece of Melon Mambo cardstock after I embossed it with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, and after I tore that piece in half. Sponging just adds a bit of richness, that sometimes your cards need.
