Merry Monday #131 Merry Christmas in Eggplant

Lori's challenge is a fun one: non-traditional Christmas colors. I, of course, went right for my purple.  My Christmas tree at home each year is decorated in silver and my favorite color, purple. I stamped the ornament in Elegant Eggplant and die cut it. I added a pretty pearl to the center.  I decided for a little shine with the white and silver dotted paper from All IS Calm DSP.  I wanted a little texture so added a piece of card stock using the Filigree Frame emboss folder to the layers. I embossed the sentiment (my favorite Merry Christmas from More Merry Messages stamp set) in Smoky Slate.  I did not have any Eggplant ribbon and no time to dye any.  But I am very happy with the way it turned out and very quick also. 
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!
