Dreaming of a Purple Christmas

This week the fine folk at Merry Monday are asking for a Christmas card featuring purple, white, and silver. Now I'm partial to purple and blue winter and/or Christmas cards, but purple, white, and silver?! I wasn't sure I could pull it off. But I did.

I started with one of my favorite images to do in purples and blues, added a fabulous shiny silver frame and some lightly textured slightly metallic purple background paper and my card was born. My original plan called for a silver ribbon tied around the bottom but in the meantime I ran across this sparkly purple ribbon tape.
The Fine Print: Image by A Muse Artstamps, dies by Spellbinders, ribbon tape by CTMH, and background paper from my generous friend.

What a fun color combination and with that shiny silver ornate frame - it's really festive too! I feel like making a whole pile of purple cards in Prince's honor!
