Merry Monday #201 - Purple, White, & Silver

Hello friends.  This week at Merry Monday the challenge is a color one...use purple, white, & silver on your Christmas card.  Oh my, LOVE this color combination!  This is what I came up with:


I started by making my own background with a Hero Arts background stamp (Snowflakes Bold Prints) and Royal Velvet and white inks.  (I stamped in the Royal Velvet ink first, turned my cardstock a quarter turn, re-inked the stamp with white pigment ink and stamped again)  I embossed my sentiment in silver from Neat and Tangled's Bright Baubles on a strip of Royal Velvet cardstock, and then die cut a snowflake (Poppystamps - Giovanna Snowflake) from holographic cardstock.  I also added a couple very thin strips of the holographic cardstock above and below the sentiment banner.  A couple rhinestones finished my card.  I think I will be making a few more of these cards as it was so easy to make and I think it turned out just lovely with these colors!!  :0)

 
There's still plenty of time to play, so check out all the beautiful inspiration from the DT and play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
