Predominantly Purple...

...is the latest challenge over at "Simply Less is More".

Although one of my favourite colours, purple is not a colour I use very often in my card making and to add to this I had to keep things fairly CAS...so not a very easy challenge for me.
I decided to go for two shades of purple CS to create the card blank and the main matt.
The image is stamped in Dusty Concord (Ranger Distress Ink pad) and I have added a little bit of shading using a couple of Copic pens. The stamps are from a clear stamp set by Kanban (Stamp11064).
I was in two minds whether to colour the flesh areas in skin tone but decided to leave them blank and just went for a bit of bling with glitter glue and purple flat-back gems.

Oh and before anyone says anything - yes, it is a Christmas card...thought I'd make an early start LOL.......................................

I had guessed as much from the first picture. ;) Did you keep count of how many you made last year? And how many you sent/gave?
