Purple Christmas

No these are not the colours that I usually use but at 52 Christmas Throwdown
They have set Purple, White and Silver for their challenge 
Had difficulty taking a photo because of the sheen on the silver card.
and the white card looks a pale mauve.
Silver is not a colour that I would use very much.
While searching for silver card I found an A4 sheet of the purple backing paper
which has been hidden away for a long time.
Perhaps my stash is too large and I should explore it more frequently.
The baubles are by Docrafts Papermania and I only used part of the
folder for the front of the card  but used the full embossing folder
on the inside of the card.
I have used foam dots on the embossed image and the strip at the bottom of the card
to raise them although this is hard to see in the photo.

Am entering this into:
