Purple is Pretty!

Two days in a row of using purple. I love it! Today's WT242 challenge on SCS is to use purple pretties, which is any shade of purple. Since purple is my favorite color, I had no problem coming up with something. I started with a piece of Prism Majestic Purple cardstock. I stamped the Many Merry Messages image on wc paper with versafine onyx black and clear embossed it and colored the snowmen in shades of purple and blue with Tombow markers. I added a few dabs of liquid applique for the fur on their hats. I sponged the image with lavender lace while it was still in the labels 4 die. The sentiment was done with a G Studio stamp in elegant eggplant. I layered that on a piece of lavender lace cardstock that was cut with the top note, and embossed with the CB snowflake ef. A few pieces of bling, a hank of ribbon and matching covered button and voila! Done!
Thanks for your visit......the door's always open :)

BTW, did anyone catch the first World Series game last night? How about that phantastic Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee and the job he did? That was the first time I ever saw a baseball player catch a ball behind his back and I LOVED it!! GO PHILS!!!
