Challenges: Creatalicious, Southerngirls, Simon says, totally gorjuss, Bah Humbug, fussy n fancy, wags n whiskers, simple doodles, abc christmas

Hi all, really loved doing this card. Purple, Mauves and anything inbetween are my favourite colours, hope yo like my take on this unusual Christmas Card. I always use promarker to colour and have added a button in the centre of the flower.Inked the edges of the white and distressed it by rubbing more ink over the embossed areas of the card. I also added ribbon and a lace border punch. lots of different textures, as well as purple glitz, not sure if you can see it too well. I am going to make a few more in this colour....I'm in luv................
