I'm Dreaming of a PURPLE Christmas!

Okay, so I LOVE purple. I have no other words but LOVE. But even that doesn't come close to really saying what my true feelings are about the matter.

Anyway, the challenge over at Papertake Weekly is to create a Christmas card/project using your favorite color/color scheme. One of my all time favorites along with purple is black. And silver. Yes, purple, black, and silver!!! SO pretty--and so versatile. You can literally make ANY card with this color scheme!

At Stamptacular Sunday, we've gotta get our GLITZ on with a Christmas Project. Over at Crimbo Crackers and Simply Create Too, they're asking for embossing. Over at Dutch Dare, it's a tic tac toe challenge and I chose to do embossing, stamped image, and die cuts. Over at Prairie Fairy Fridays, they want a Christmas card/project with NO red or green. And over at Crafty Creations they're wanting us to DECK THE HALLS with glitter and embossing! :)

Whew! Those are all the fabulous challenges I'm entering my card into--and I LOVE the way it turned out! I think it's gorgeous and I hope you'll agree!

Here it is~

And details~



And the inside~
