Silent Night Scene ~ CCMC376

Happy Thursday stampers!!!!  Create with Connie and Mary is bringing you another fabulous challenge this week!  CCMC #376 is a lovely color challenge.

Many of my regular visitors might know that purple is not the first color I reach for when crafting.  However, I do enjoy it when it comes to a winter themed card.  It always plays nice with a frosty blue.  The color combo challenges us to use Lost Lagoon along with Perfect Plum.  Lost Lagoon is kind of one of those colors that can go a couple of ways....sometimes it looks blue, sometimes it looks greenish.  I chose to color in the evergreen trees (which I stamped twice) from {Happy Scenes} with my Lost Lagoon pad and blender pen.  I think it makes the trees look wonderful!  
I sponged in Perfect Plum to make a pretty night sky.  I added the snow in the trees and snowflakes with my white gel pen.  
I also colored the tree trunks with my Tip Top Taupe marker.
I lightly sponged the snowbanks with a little Lost Lagoon as well.
The lovely sentiment is from {Wonderland}.

For the background, I stamped the two bigger snowflakes from {Flurry of Wishes} onto a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Perfect Plum with the same color ink.  
I added a Lost Lagoon banner cut from retired Floral District DSP.  I thought it looked nice because the print has what looks like little snowflakes on it.  
The white glitter ribbon was added because I accidentally dropped one of my stamps onto my card.....don't you hate it when that happens????  Luckily, it was in a spot where I could cover it up easily.  It even looks as though I meant to put it there!  LOL!

I hope you can check out and leave some blog love on the other designers sites!  
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
