As I Told You Yesterday...

I was making a Christmas Card!

When I discovered Christmas Challenges all year long, I decided I had to participate in most of them so that I could have lots of Christmas cards ready for autumn.
Actually, I don't manage to make as many Christmas cards as I wished to, but every now and then I fit one in my schedule.

Here's the last one I've made:
I had some problems while taking the picture: the card looks blue but it is purple! I finally decided to go under the sun (and today there's LOT OF sun) and it's now a bit more purple but it's always quite far from the original color...
The lovely digi is Chloe and Christmas Tree from DigiStamp Boutique, which I colored with watercolor pencils in shades of pink and purple. I added glitter on Chloe's coat and on the sleight and tree.
The papers are from a stash I bought on the internet without knowing the brand while the lovely purple rose is fromWild Orchid Crafts.

I will enter the following Challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - G is for Girly: they wanted a girly card with pink, silver and purple (hence my need that the card appears exactly as it is - purple!)

Well, today the temperature is around 30 °C (85 °F)... it's incredibly hot for this period of the year and Christmas seems so far away...
