Homespun Hearts Snowy

Another Christmas card today...this time, in non-traditional purple. I've used a High Hopes image ('Homespun Hearts Snowy') sent to me by my lovely ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy Lacey (thank you!)...and he's been waiting patiently in my image box for some time, so I though that it was about time I coloured him! For the background, I embossed various shades of purple card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots', 'Snowflakes' and Sizzix 'Snowglobe' folders. The sentiment stamp is from a Lili of the Valley set.
