peaceful greetings...

Hello!!  Popping in with a card for a few challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch, Color Throwdown, Time Out (Christmas with a twist to add sparkle) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (anything goes).  When I saw the Color Throwdown combo I had to play along!  I'm not a huge fan of purple, but I just absolutely loved the super fun color palette!   I got super sparkly with my card, too!  I stamped one of the snowflakes from the MFT October card kit in purple and then die cut it with the matching die.  I then covered the snowflake with VersaMark ink, poured on some clear sparkly embossing powder and heat set.  I had die cut the sentiment from the green glitter paper that came with the kit back when I got the kit, but never used them.  Since green was one of the colors in the palette they were perfect for my card.  The blue glitter paper was also in the kit and I die cut it with the Stitched Inside Out dies.  I almost added glitter to the black cardstock banners, lol!!   I included a close up of the snowflake so you can see that it that in fact purple. 

 
Hope you have a wonderful day...
Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog, white, PTI black; MFT green and blue glitter cardstock; Stamps:  MFT; Ink:  Close to My Heart Pansy Purple, VersaMark; Embossing powder:  Stampin Up! Iridescent
