Lovely in Lilac

Hi, my weekend seems to be going far too quickly. It'll be Monday morning before I know it but I've managed to make another couple of Christmas cards. This one is for the 'Lovely in Lilac' challenge at Bah Humbug

I had to use this gorgeous purple and gold card from Hunky Dory for this card and thought it would be a great background for some baubles made with Paula Pascaul stamps. I've just got these from the lovely Linda at Jazzlins Designs and they are FAB! I think they are going to be used again and again.

I've stamped a variety of the stamps to make the baubles, they are all embossed with gold EP and inked with Dusty Concorde DT. I just added some scraps of gold ribbon to make them into baubles for a really quick card.

I'm also entering this one in the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles: Anything goes
Daring Cardmakers: We three... baubles (lol)
Crazy 4 Challenges: Add circles
Southern Girls: Favourite Colour

Thanks for visiting. I'm going to have a lazy Sunday afternoon with a piece of homemade Rocky Road and my feet up in front of the TV
