Christmas in purple and turquoise

Good morning and happy Halloween to all of you who are celebrating it. :) I'm not a big fan of spooky things, zombies etc., so Halloween really isn't my favourite holiday. So instead of showing you a Halloween project I'd rather show you another Christmas card I made. :)

I wanted to do a Christmas card in non-traditonal colours so I picked these lovely purple and turquoise papers that came as a freebie in a craft magazine a couple of years ago. And I matched them with this fab dotty ribbon from Crafty ribbons - it was just the perfect colour for my card. :D You can find this ribbon here (I know this one seems brighter, but it it's the same one). See these snowmen? This was one of the first stamps I bought when I started making crafts (actually it came in a set with some others). And til now I haven't used it even once. Shame on me, I know. But it's small so I wasn't sure how to make it as a center image. But I thought it would sort of look good at this card (if I also added some snowflakes above the image). The snowflakes were made with my craft punch and the crystals are from my stash. Around the edges of the image I added some diamond Stickles.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx
