Faith @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It's that time again, time for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ...
This is such a beautiful theme, especially for Christmas cards!

I took this challenge with a leap of faith as well and had a play with 'purple' and we all know 'purple' and I don't normally 'mojo' well together lol but mojo pulled through for me :)

 Yep, more of those Kaisercraft Rub On's :$ Least they are getting used, though I did splurge and used a new one for the sentiment :$  But the sentiment and the image just go so well together that I just could not resist.  I have also repeated a layout from a few weeks back as it just looked magical and with the purple's, kraft and browns I think it looks pretty magical. The flower is Kaisercraft and a left over I found in my stash along with the ribbon and the pins and bead spray is handmade.

As always the girls and I would love if you played along with us at
The challenge theme is optional, the only real rule is you must create a new Christmas Holiday, winter or Hanukkah card / creation.

I look forward to seeing you there! 
Thanks for dropping in to see me today :)
