SEEING PURPLE

Good morning everyone! It's time for another challenge over 
at Christmas Card Challenges and this week we have a photo
that we hope will inspire you. 


I have to admit that purple is not a color I think of when making
Christmas cards. Actually it's not a color I think of using much at all but
I think this challenge has inspired me to use it more often.


For this card I used a variety of dies:
Seasonal Greetings - My Creative Time
Stitched Rectangle Stackables & Stitched Hillside Borders - Lawn Fawn
Bring on the Snowflakes dies - CAS-ual Fridays
I used the Harleen stencil from Catherine Pooler's latest 
Stamp of Approval Collection and some distress inks from Tim Holtz
to create the background.

Check out the rest of the CCC design team and see what they have
created. I hope you'll be inspired to embrace the purple and
play along with us.


Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
