Breast Cancer Awareness, Jingle Belles style!

Good Monday evening, everyone!  I hope your days all went well...Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and relatives, too! 
 
I'm here to share with you my first card for the Jingle Belles *PINK* challenge:
 
 
A couple of firsts in the making of this card:  My first actual Tiddly Inks "physical" stamp, from the set that came with issue #130 of Quick Cards!  Oh, I was SO EXCITED to get my hands on this issue, let me tell ya!  The whole set is too stinkin' cute!  If you don't know this character, her name is Wrynn, and I just think she is so adorable!  My other first for this card is that this is the first time I ever tried water coloring with stamps!  I don't think I did *too* badly, but there is definitely room for improvement!  I used distress inks to do the water coloring, and watched a few YouTube videos beforehand.  The sentiment is computer generated, as I couldn't find anything at all suitable in my vast collection of Christmas stamps...imagine that, lol!  I loved this Papertake sketch that I saw on Dee's blog, so I used it for this card.  It's #68.
 
Other challenges I'm linking to:
 
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra:  Always Anything Goes
Christmas at Sweet Stampin':  Snowflakes (snowflake embossing folder)
 
Well, I suppose that's about it for tonight.  It's 11:00pm, and I should get to bed!  Goodnight, and take care!
