The Missing Christmas Card

Since I forgot to add this to the post last night, here is the missing card.
I really do love this card. It's simple and i think turned out very cute.
I was inspired with the colors when we went to the singing Christmas tree.
They brought out a huge purple & gold Jesus banner. Loved the color combo.
So then I went online and tried to find pictures of random purple and gold things.
And then that led to the final Christmas card being created.

I used a SU set I borrowed from a friend on this card. The swirl at the top is a TAC stamp. The white c/s is glossy, and the purple c/s are both from TAC. The gold c/s is something I had bought a long time ago.
I used gold embossing powder. And even though I got lots of practice embossing with these cards, I still am no expert at it. I even used that silly embossing buddy.
Its a bit hard to see, but there is purple stickles in the centers of the snowflakes and through out the tree. I used my CM 12" wave cutter to do the cuts for the purple and gold papers.
