Purple, Gold & White for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm excited to be Guest Designing for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown!

To get my deep purple, I die cut the ornament from Gorgeous Grape cardstock,
smooshed it on my VersaMark pad, sprinkled clear powder and heat embossed.

I also used it around the edge of another piece of cardstock and embossed to use
as a piece of matting.

The sentiment is embossed with gold.

How would you use these colors?
I hope you'll join in at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.

What a stunning, rich, elegant looking Christmas card Bonnie! I don't know why, but deep purple reminds me of one of the Wise Men that visited Jesus. It say's money to me. lol I love this card and these color combo's! Gold is rich and of course remind me of the Wise Men as well. Perfect colors for Christmas! That ornament is gorgeous and I am so loving the embossed background. Hugs, Brenda

WOW! Great card, Bonnie. Wonderful colors, a beautiful combination, very elegant. Thank you for telling me how to make a frame without using the entire panel. I have not thought of such a clever solution. Thank you :-))

What a stunning ornament, Bonnie. It is so elegant and royal with the deep purple. The embossing gave it a bit of texture too. That is a lovely frame to showcase it.
