SFYTT Thinking about the holidays

I'm surprising myself lately with some of my colors. I rarely use purple in anything but for some reason, the DP out there this season is inspiring me!!!  I'm loving it!  It's such a fresh color scheme for holiday cards.  Wanna know what else is inspiring me???  Jen del Muro's sketches are rocking and I tend to have a little bit of free time on the weekends so I sat down over the weekend and made this card.  The stamp is called Polar Gifts Cling from Stampendous that I bought at my Local stamp store, Crafty Capers.  The image has been watercolored with my Tombow Markers and a water brush.  I have to say (patting myself on the back) that I really like how my coloring turned out on this card.  See the snowflakes???  I made these using matching DP as the card as well as a MS Snowflake punch. Before punching the snowflakes out, I put some thick Scor-tape on the DP and then punched the flakes. I then added Dazzling Diamonds for a bit of glitz.  You know me... I love me some bling!! Each layer of DP has been dry embossed with various embossing folders and I've sponged the edges of each with co-ordinating inks.

Can I just say WAHOO??? Another Christmas card down!
