Home for the Holidays

 Is it Friday again, already?!  Yikes, time sure flies when you're having fun.  Time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin All Year Long: Use Non-Traditional colors on your Christmas project.  Our Sponsor is Fred She Said and the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the store!


I chose to go with a purple theme and I posted two different pictures because I had a hard time getting a good shot of the true color.  The base is a soft lavender and the accents are a deep purple.  I really love how it turned out.  There is a house nearby here that has a lavender door; it's so pale that you don't even notice it at first, but it is really pretty.  That was the inspiration for my color scheme since I wanted to color my door purple.  But after I didn't have a marker with the right shade.  So I left my door white and when with purple accents instead (with a little black thrown in for contrast).  I used a glitter pen on the bow and the purple berries on the wreath and the trees but it doesn't show up very well.  But in real life it's really quite elegant; you'll just have to take my word for it. : )
Now, hop on over to the CSAYL blog to check out the full details and to see what non-traditional colors the rest of the DT have used.  Then get inky and play along.
