Merry Monday July Challenge, Week 3

We are now on week 3 of the July Challenge at Merry Monday!  The challenge in July runs all month long and you can enter any new Christmas creation!  My card this week is a retake on last week’s card.  I went with a toned down version of purple, Smokey Plum.  It has more of an actual purple tone than my photography skills allow to show! 

All of my images are stamped in Smokey Plum pigment ink and clear embossed.  My background paper is hand stamped.  I went back and added Glitz gel to the center of my snowflakes for a little bling.

  1. Such an elegant card, and so lovely! Gorgeous stamps you used. Thanks for joining us at Crafting When We Can and good luck! Hugs, Robin

  2. Stunning card. I love the design and the colors. I always finish the inside of my cards, so I really liked seeing that you did that on yours also. It just "complete" the card/design. Thanks for sharing it with us this week at Christmas Card Challenges. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.

  5. OK, Allisa, I've seen this purple version, but I' m looking for a "purple, but not like a purple, but more like a puuuurple" . Think the paint commercial with the guys all painted purple…lol. BUT, I do love this version too! 🙂
