Another Halloween Christmas

Good morning everyone,

I have another Halloween Christmas card to share with you, hoping to give you some inspiration for the Christmas Cards All Year Round Challenge of Oktober; Use Halloween colours for your Christmas Card. You still have another week or so to enter, the deadline is the 31st of Oktober.

This time around I used a purple base and kept it fairly simple:

The image originally came with DPs in traditional colours, but I think this works well too!

* Champagne base card
* Studio Light 3D image, purple DP and sentiment
* SEI Vanilla Icing Accents
* Prima Daisy Doodles Flower
* Stickles on the wreath
* Gold peel offs and gem from stash

* Aud Sentiments (Winter)
* Bling It On (No Patterned Paper)
* Crafting When We Can (Christmas)
* Ooh La La (Let It Snow)
* Emerald Fairy (Flowers)
* Christmas Inspirations (Punches/Die-cuts)
* Christmas Card Challenge (Christmas Card)
* Heart Song Inspirations (Flowers/Felt)
* Stamps R Us (Nature's Gifts)
* Top Tip Tuesday (Layer It Up)

Hope you like, see you a little later today for the first ever Card Makin' Mamas bloghop!!!! :)
