Purple Christmas

When I started this card I knew the image I wanted to use and the background paper and that was it! It changed direction so many times its unbelievable! but I'm pleased with the final outcome.  The image is by Papermania (I think from 2 years ago!), paper is from Bearly Mine Designs, I used vellum and embossed it with stars before stitching it to the card (yep dusted the sewing machine off for this one!) I even used sparkly purple thread but it doesn't show, then embossed some purple cs with same folder and swiped it with white ink pad then added to 2 layers of ribbon, inked the edge of the image to soften it and added some vellum snowflakes (quikcutz die) and purple gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly ~ Sketch #73

Oh and the snow has almost gone now ;)
