FTTC199 - Non-Traditional Christmas

Hello everyone~
It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC199)!! I took a few weeks off from this challenge but I am glad to be back! I hope you remember me, lol.

It is Ally's turn to host and she is challenging us to make a Christmas/holiday card with non traditional Christmas colors - no red or green here ;)
Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

For my card, I used purple and blue. The stamp image was from Peace & Joy set and I stamped it on the classic white cardstock with Memento tuxedo black. It was colored with Copic markers. The rest of the card was created with  CME Crocus paper collection and MME designer paper.  For the embellishments, I used the white scalloped lace trim and light blue crochet lace. Then the silver swirl rhinestones were dressed on them to finish off.

Copic colors I used for this project:

Maki this is very sweet. I adore the purple and blue together and the layered ribbon is great.

Oh, I just LOVE the purple and blue. Your coloring on the Joy is SO excellent! I actually thought you used a reverse cut of the joy! Beautiful card, Maki, and welcome back!
