Visions of sugarplums - Christmas card

I'm getting behind in my Christmas card making!!  For several weeks, I have missed the challenges at jingle belles.  This week the inspiration was a photo and the theme was visions of sugarplums.  I think I have mentioned that I am a traditional red, green, and gold Christmas person.  Sooooo... purple???  
I tried it... purple, dangling, sparkling.   I really like how it  turned out.

What I used:
~premade 5x7 card, vellum, Bazzill lt purple, silver Slice paper
~vellum embossed with Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder
~ornaments from Christmas Noel cart cut at 2 1/2" and 3 1/4" with blackout
~MS branch punch
~hemp, brads, and stamp

Thanks for looking!!

This totally works - the sparkle and texture really is great and I'm more of a traditional Christmas colors person as well so I feel your pain - lol. But you've used the sugarplums inspiration beautifully. Really looks good!

I really love your non-traditional Christmas colors. Kudos to you for attempting this!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog and thanks for becoming a "follower". As you can see I'm a newbie. You have probably noticed that I don't post everyday but to make up for that....I do 3 or 4 posts (usually) on Tuesday.
