Purple Christmas

I am quite excited to be posting this post today as it is my first post in ages that I have done just for fun....I love the DT work I do as it keeps me motivated and making regularly but sometimes I enjoy not having any design restrictions (as in need to do something specific and have fun)...

I got my stamp club from Bron's last week and well I fell in love with it all but in particular I LOVED my purple papers. Now if you know me Purple is the colour that I can not create with...I love everyone else's work with it and purple in general but for crafting I normally take a wide berth! However I was itching to use the paper and then I saw the TOMIC Challenge this week and decided what the heck, jump out of your comfort zone!!!!

So here is my card:

and here is a close up of Tilda where you can see the sparkly tinsel I have done...

Not too sure if my card is balanced quite right but after playing and playing with the arrangements this is the best I could come up with..It will probably hit me later today what I could have done to balance it better.  Anyway I have to say that I am in LOVE with my card and think that perhaps I should jump out of my comfort zone a bit more often!!!!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenges - Bingo - I have used the bottom line
Pink Ink Sketches - I have used the sketch and flipped it to the side
Deep Ocean Challenges - Sweet - I think she is really sweet and she is from the Sweet Dreams Collection!
Paper Sundaes Challenges - Sundae Bar - I used sparkles, flowers and distressing

Well I best be going and getting back to doing some stuff around the house....
Don't forget I have some blog candy up for grabs...if you are interested see my post here.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time
