Dashing through the snow

Hello ladies - the weekend is almost over and I am squeezing in a weekend post. Where has the time been going? This week starts the Christmas parties - so hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner!

Tonight's Challenge: Design Dollies has a color challenge which I do believe ends tonight - nothing like squeezing in at the last moment! But I felt I wanted to be challenged and this was it - PURPLE! Me and purple do not get along - I would say it one of my least favorite colors. In the end, I have a purple, on purple, on purple card (for someone who doesn't like purple sure seems to have A LOT of paper). Not one of my favorite cards - maybe it's the purple ;)

Card Ingredients: Recollections Basics Purple Argyle and Pinstripe paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Inkadinkado and studio g stamps; Stampendous! PearLustre Garnet embossing powder; Cuttlebug Traffic Jam folder; random gems.

Happy Sunday! See you all tomorrow!!

LOL I'm not much of a fan either of purple... only this summer did I actually buy a couple of purple shirts. Maybe I am liking it a little better?? Anyway, your card is gorgeous! You did an awesome job with the purple. Love the image!

I love the purple...it is one of my fave colors and I think it works wonderfully for winter layouts...maybe it's cuz our school colors are purple and white...dunno...but i likey!!!!

I think you did a remarkable job of this challenge. As you know I love purple, because everytime I see something in this color, I think of Julia. Perhaps sometime, you could try a silver or blue embossing powder, to see if you'd like that color combo. I saw a flyer photo of a Xmas tree decorated in purple, silver and blue, and it looked fab. Just a thought! You should be so proud of your creation. It's modern and trendy and purple-icious. Have a great week!!

I know exactly what you mean about purple - not one of my faves either but having said that this is just beautiful. Love all the layers - you must have a secret purple stash lol. Great image too!

Love Lynda xxx

Love that comment from your husband! I have made a card like that also where I didnt care for the color challenge. I think you did just fine. There will be many more that you will probably like better.
