Holiday Card - using non traditional purple!

I have been a member of the Tiffany Doodles Design Team for the past 6/7 months and had a great time.  I finished my DT stint this month.  Thank you Tiffany for letting me showcase your wonderful digis and I wish you and your wonderful DT all the very best for the future.

I knew when I saw this wonderful star tree by Tiffany over on Tiffany Doodles that I had to do something funky with it.... so I decided on non traditional colours teamed with an SRM sentiment Sticker.

Used Basic Grey Jovial range as the base on top of kraft, printed the star tree on kraft and punched a large circle for behind the tree.  Had these wonderful purple gems in my stash.  Distressed with my blending tool and tea dye ink.

Moxie Fab World have some fab challenges at the moment and I am entering this into the Glitter is Glam Challenge.

Thanks so much for peeking, Deirdre
