Purple Christmas

 Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week is a fun one: Christmas with non-traditional colors.

And here is the card I created:
I definitely love my traditional color schemes for Christmas, but every once in a while I do like a good non-traditional colored card--specially purple!  I think it's so fun for Christmas!  I created a little shaker element tag to be the focal point.  I stamped the cute little snowman, colored him and added silver stickles to to his snowflakes.  I accidently swiped a bit of black ink on the frame after I had almost all the layers adhered together.  Ugh!!  So, I saw a snowflake die set I had and cut some out of silver glitter paper.  One of the small ones was just perfect to cover up the ink!  And as a bonus, they were a perfect addition to the card!  The little "Merry Christmas" was created with a little creative masking.  It turned out to be the perfect size for the little banner!
Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this challenge.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Winter Frame" (I used the snowman without the frame) and "Christmas Tree 2-sided Swing Stamp Set" (I used the Merry Christmas from the first part of the 2-part sentiment)
Dies: MFT "Tag Builder Blueprints 5" and freebie snowflakes

Looks like I'm not the only one who made a purple Christmas card! LOL That shaker tag is beyond cute and what a great save with the silver snowflake to hide the boo-boo! Cute Card!
