Shiny ornament - CCC #23

Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges!!

This card is very unusual for me... it's purple.  This is my least favorite color, so I don't use it often and have basically none in my stash, so this was a real challenge for me.  The ornament is a dark purple, though it looks almost black in the pic.  

Slice papers
Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons EF
Die-namics Small Ornaments die (ornament hanger)
Momenta Moroccan die
Spellbinders Standard Circles
Sentiment die - freebie that came with a Dies R Us order

This week's optional photo inspiration is purple & silver ornaments...

Good job stretching yourself to use a color you don't love ... it makes a beautiful holiday bauble ... so glad you *embossed* around the Christmas Tree with the Jingle Belles.

You made a beautiful card, even if you aren't a fan of purple!

Good for you in stepping out of your comfort zone and using a colour you are not keen on. I hope you were pleased with it in the end because it is so lovely! I really like the embossed detail - just gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing with us at ABC Christmas Challenge, and I hope you will join us again soon.
