Another Purple Christmas!

Happy Thursday everyone!  This week I actually had a moment to just create for myself.  So I pulled out some of my new Purple Onions Designs stamps and began to create for a few fun challenges I’d seen around.

Purple is my favourite colour by far so any excuse to use it in my books is good!

I began my card by creating a fun tag including the sweet little skating snowwomen and her fine feathered friend in tow!

Here’s a close up of the back ground purple cardstock.  I used the Merry Christmas greeting from the Power Poppy stamp set “Poinsettia” and the stars are from Purple Onion Designs, like the snowman and birdie.

I chose the snowman (and the tag) for this week’s “The Card Concept” challenge.  I used a Clean & Graphic style for my card today.

I also chose to add the little bird for this week’s Merry Monday Challenge – use a bird on your Christmas card.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

I will admit that purple doesn't even begin to come to mind for a Christmas card, but WOW, this is so adorable. The depths of color and all the background stamping make this tag card such a joy to look at. Your coloring is awesom, and you have changed my mind about purple on holiday cards!

There can never be too much purple!

I love your choice of non-traditional colors - so refreshing and fun! Your coloring/shading is beautiful. Love the bit of purple striped paper and the nice glimmer and shimmer of your papers! Thanks for sharing this awesome tag with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
