Purple Christmas

Hello everybody! :) How are you? I've been enjoying my week so far. Still, I'll be happy when weekend comes. ;) I just hope the weather will be nicer than it was last weekend. Last Saturday was really bad. Needless to say, that's the day me and my sweetie went to a culinary festival that was in a city a couple of hours drive from here. :S We still managed to taste different things, which was good, but unfortunately we couldn't go for a walk around the city. Oh well, lesson learned - sometimes you need to trust the weathermen. 

On the happier note, I got the tickets for the Bryan Adams concert that's happening in December - my sweetie bought me these as an early b-day present. Isn't he the sweetest?! :D B. Adams is one of my all time favourite singers so I'm super excited about this concert. I wish I could rush the time so December would be here already. ;)

As for the crafting goes, I want to show you a Christmas card I made. This is my second post as a GDT for Digital delights so I am using their adorable image called Snowflake Shelly.

I like purple for Christmas and I like purple and gold colour combination, so I decided to use it on my card. All of the papers came from my stash. Gems and doily came from my stash as well. Ribbons, lace and the tiny bead trim (see under the lace) are from Crafty ribbons. See the Christmas baubles on the right corner? That's actually a stamp I bought when I was in England this summer. I got it at clearance for 0.50 gbp. Is this a bargain or what?! ;) I embossed it with Queen's gold embossing powder and then cut the baubles out with my scissors.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. I covered Shelly's wings and snowflakes with diamond Stickles and the white part of Shelly's cap was done with liquid applique. Dies that I used on this card are from Spellinders, Marianne design and Sizzix. The oval behind Shelly was embossed with Mpress Mystic clouds embossing folder. I heat embossed the edge of the oval as well.

I raised Shelly and die cut snowflakes on foam pads to give the card some dimension.

That's all from me today. Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx
