Purple Christmas!

Hard to believe but I am now starting to make Christmas cards! Wow, the year has flown by! We are onto another challenge at Hooked On Craft Challenges and our challenge this time is 'Christmas - no red or green'. I have made a card for a friend who loves the colour purple, so I have made a nice purple and blue themed card. My image is one of the gorgeous stamps from La-La Land and she is called 'Christmas Elf Marci'. I have coloured Marci with copics and added lots of glitter and glossy accents. My 'wish list' is a stamp from Whimsy Stamps and I embossed it with pretty purple embossing powder. My corners are also from Whimsy Stamps and I cut them out with glitter paper (can't get enough glitter on my cards!). As always my beautiful flowers and rose buds are from the fabulous Hooked On Craft.

Please join us at Hooked On Craft Challenges for our 'Christmas - no red or green' challenge!
