Purple Christmas

Morning, My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well it's Bank Holiday Monday and I hope you all enjoy the day, as for those
of you who work, sorry to say its your last one till Christmas, Stinks doesn't it.

 Anyway lets not dwell on that, I thought today I would share another
Christmas card with you all (Oh no I hear you cry but Its Got To Be Done)
as how else would we push ourselves to make them HA! HA!!!

I am excited that over at Whoopsi Daisy I received a third place in their
challenge and have taken my badge with pride.


1. 8 x8 scalloped edged white card to this I added a piece of
mirri board that I embossed and a lilac ribbon.

2. Using the Creative Expressions mask Swirl Frame I 
placed it onto purple card and stencilled using Cosmic
Shimmer Sparkle Textured paste Pink Blush.

3. Once dry I mounted it onto white card and adhered it to
my card.

4. Using Tattered Lace dies Winter Foliage and Cottage Cuts
die Ornate Poinsettia I cut using white card stock, then
glittered for that extra sparkle ( does not show up very well)

5. To complete again using the  Tattered Lace  sentiment
Winter Wishes it was cut from white card and glittered
and added to the centre.  I tied a bow leaving long tails
to twist for that added effect, lilac gems added to ribbon
to finish.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will
pop back soon.
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
