Purple Holiday Wishes

I am a fan of non-traditional Christmas colors.  Purple is my favorite color….I would have a purple Christmas tree if I could get away with it.  Until I have a house large enough to put up multiple Christmas trees, I do not think a purple tree is in my future.   To compensate, you will see numerous purple Christmas cards coming from this household!  This card was made with the Holiday Wishes stamp set.  Your time is coming to a close to get this set….it is only available through November 30, 2011.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted.

In all of my blog hopping, I have seen so many creations with the Liquid Pearls.  I just had to try some out!  The little silver bling you see on my tree was made with the Liquid Pearls in Platinum Pearl.  You could always use rhinestones as well.
