Purple for Christmas

Hi everybody! How are you doing? I'm good, just tiiiiired. I haven't been sleeping so well over the last couple of days; hopefully this will change soon. 

A new challenge started at Crafty ribbons blog today and this time the theme is "Monochrome Christmas" (+ ribbon). I find monochrome theme quite challenging to be honest. I was thinking about what colour to choose for this challenge and I decided to go with purple - something a bit different, not the traditional Christmas colour. 

I used different scraps of purple paper from my stash along with the gorgeous morlaix lace and clermont lace that are available at the Crafty ribbons store. I also used wedding satin ribbon from the store. To make the ribbon more "interesting" I stamped over it with a snowflake stamp. the main image I used on this card is a rubber stamp from Hero Arts. Unfortunately it's very, very hard to see in the picture, but I covered the trees and parts of the snow with glitter glue. Then I sprinkled some frantage all around the image. A the end I glued some sequins around the card for some extra bling.

I hope you'll come play with us. I would love to see your monochrome Christmas creations! :)

Also, don't forget to enter my candy, it ends in 2 days. 

Have a wonderful day! xx
