I'm dreaming of a purple Christmas...

Hi all!

There's still one day left to enter my blogoversary candy here. So if you haven't put your name down yet, go do it now!

I'm here just for fun today. No DT work at all, just a Christmas card I'd like to share. A purple Christmas card even! Purple is my favourite colour, but I often find it very hard to work with. I've made a few cards with lots of purple recently, and I think I'm possibly getting the hang of it!

Anyways, this card was made using the adorable "Christmas Dance" stamp from LOTV, and I teamed her up with some gorgeous Magnolia Christmas papers. (Because I don't have the new purple LOTV X-mas papers yet... Don't worry, this will be rectified soon! lol.)

I added some die-cut poinsettias and holly, and finished off with gems, snow tex and some letter beads to spell out a sentiment.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but the stars in the image are all metallic silver, so they shimmer nicely.
I've also started playing with some new ways of colouring things, and so far I'm liking the results...

Now, while I'm here, I figure I'll enter this into this month's LOTV challenge, as the theme is Christmas.

Have a fantastic day everyone!

Wow, what a gorgeous Christmas card and so lovely in that rich purple! I have been eyeing up the new LOTV purple papers too!
The snowy details on your card are just lovely and the little NOEL letter beads are super cute :-)
