Colourful Christmas

The challenge this week at 52 CCT is a colour challenge - to use purple, green and silver

At first I thought it was an odd colour combo - but then I found a set of green and purple craftwork card parts I'd bought a couple of years ago so obviously I was attracted to and it does actually work really well (thanks Mynette for making me look at it again!)

I used a purple base card and a piece of pearl lime green cardstock that matches the craftwork cards set and stamped on it a new gorgeous tree from Dimension stamps that I picked up at a craft fair on Sunday.  I embossed it with primary indigo powder from WOW and added some purple stickles for extra sparkle and silver for the star on top.  I added a strip of embossed silver cardstock and finished with a purple sentiment circle from the craftwork cards set.


  1. So glad you came back to the cards--I LOVE purple, and purple and green go so well as they compliment each other! This is fabulous--LOVE the embossing and your image is beautiful! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :)
