Purple Christmas!





Hi All,
How are you? Hope you've had a good week. I've got 4 days off now, have a long weekend off for my Birthday on Monday. My Mum is coming down as my Dad is on a course, it'll be the first year I haven't seen him on my Birthday so I'm a bit sad about that. 

I have made this card for my Nanna for Christmas, I have never used purple before on a Christmas card, I'm too much of a traditional girl to be honest - however, I really like how this has turned out!!

I used a LOTV cute square and some papers from Pink Petticoat and DCWV.

This is also the first time I have used flowers on my card but again I really like how this has turned out.

Please excuse the lighting in the photo, as I'm sure most of you are aware the weather is a bit pants at the moment!

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:


Thanks for looking!
