A Purple Christmas

Friday, November 6, 2009

I'm back with another Christmas card. I just love how this one turned out. This image is from Wags 'n Whiskers and is called Zoe & Gemma Snow Fun. Wags 'n Whiskers very 1st challenge started today. The theme of the challenge is MAKE 'EM SPARKLE. Just make your cards/projects sparkle and make sure you use a Wags 'n Whiskers stamp. The "sparkle" that I used was the 3 purple gemstones on the right side of my card and the 1 purple gemstone in the middle of the snowflakes on the left side of the card. I also added Frosted Lace Stickles to both hats, the snowflakes, the snowmans buttons and to the snow at their feet. There is also a glittery effect to the ribbon that I used on the card. (It's kinda hard to see in this picture).

Susie's Sassy Challenge began their very 1st challenge yesterday. The theme for their very 1st challenge is CHRISTMAS. My color scheme came from the challenge over at Lily-Boo Too Challenge Blog. This month's theme is the color PURPLE.

This weeks challenge at Creative Card Crew was to use Ribbon and Gems on your project. The ribbon I used is called Offray Kendra White/Opal and the gemstones are purple.

The sketch that I used for my card is this weeks challenge over at Mojo Monday. When I saw this sketch I knew that I needed to use it to make a Christmas card. It's a simple sketch, yet you can add to it in so many ways. I will definately be using this sketch again.

Supplies used: Wags 'n Whiskers Zoe & Gemma Snow Fun stamp, Offray Kendra white/opal ribbon, Frosted Lace Stickles, EK Success snowflake punch, patterned paper ~ Francis Meyer, cardstock ~ white, purple & lavender
