Color Challenge Christmas Card

Good Morning - I'm a little later than usual with this post as I had a terrible headache yesterday and just had to go to bed. I'm feeling much better today (thank goodness) and am ready to enjoy this fabulous Friday!

Today is another Christmas Stampin' All Year challenge - and it's a color one. This week we'd like to see you create a Christmas card using the colors VIOLET, IVORY, WHITE and GOLD.

I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder to really make it be the center of attention. I wanted then to add gold accents but guess what? I guess I don't like gold cause I couldn't find ANYTHING gold in my supplies - and I have a LOT of supplies! So I had to rethink my card. I dry embossed my purple cardstock, since I knew the layout was going to be pretty simple. I LOVE my purple bow - it's nice a big and fluffy.

So whatcha think? I hope you'll play along this week! Just visit the CSAYL blog for details and remember you may just get picked to be a guest designer - how cool would that be?!?

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you have a wonderful day today and a super weekend!!
