In The Pink??

Good Morning all!
It's Wednesday & as you know, that means a new DT card from me for the
The theme this week is 
Think Pink!
 Many people are unaware that Breast Cancer can affect men as well as women!
300 men a year are diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the UK alone!
Early detection leads to early treatment & a better survival rate!
To help raise awareness,
we want to see your Dude's cards featuring Pink!
Here's my card!

As soon as I heard the theme, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
A Christmas, Tri Shutter Card, featuring the wonderful 
Santi Beaches 
I used a sheet of Pink A4 card stock for the base of my card!
The design paper I have used is by Elaine Hayhoe & is part of a download from 
I love the colour combo of this paper!

I coloured Santi using my Promarkers, in similar colours to those in the paper!
I used Woodware Fluffy Stuff on his beard & on his hat!
His sunglasses & cocktail glass have been given a coat of 
Anita's 3D Clear Gloss Liquid Embossing
I then just cut the image to shape & mounted on a piece of silver mirror card.
I added a few little peel of sparkly dots to the corners on the image

On either end of the card, I added some silver elastic twine & a 
silver pink & white poinsettia with a white glittery brad centre.

I made a circle sentiment in my graphics programme.
Which was cut out with an inverted scalloped circle nestie
& this too was mounted on silver mirror card.
Additional embellishments on my card are mirror card punched 
Christmas trees, pink ribbons white card candi & a few pink gems.
There is also a Merry Christmas sentiment
I hope you like it & that you can find the time to enter the 
Dude Time Doodles Think Pink Challenge!
