New Challenge #64 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hello again,
Well what a horrible fortnight I've had.
First the printer stops working,
then when it starts again the ink has run out.
Problems with the computer,
so that had to go to the 'Doctors'.
But on a good note I am now finally all finished
for Christmas, all the shopping is done,
wrapping all finished, and now can't 
move for presents everywhere.

Well on to this weeks Challenge.....

the Theme at Glitter n Sparkle is:-
Non Traditional Christmas Colours

Our sponsors this week are:-

Sassy Studios who are 
offering 4 images for the winner 

Crafty Sentiments who are 
offering 3 digis for the winner 

Inky Impressions who are 
offering a $10 Gift Certificate 

My project for this week is: 

Samantha Sassy digi stamp
from Sassy Studios (one of our sponsors).

For my Base Card I used a 
Pre-cut  White Square Swing Card
On one side of the Card, 
I used 'Royal Purple' Paper (Stash) 
which I cut to fit.
Then I used a piece of Purple Snowflake Paper,
to go in the 'Swing' middle of the card,
on the facing side when closed.
And on the other side of the 'Swing center 
I used some Pearl Grey Card
on which I put my verse.

I then coloured in my digi image 
in using my Promarker Pens.
And cut her out using the 
Large Scalloped Oval Die-Cut (X-Cut).

For my Sentiment I used the
'Happy Holidays' Clear Stamp
(Vintage Christmas - 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine),
which I heat embossed, 
using Versamark Watermark Ink,
and Tinsel Silver Embossing Powder

On the inside/back of the card,
I stamped Large Snowflakes
(Dovecrafts) all over,
using Silver Premium Pigment Ink

For my finishing touches
I used Multi Mix Purple/Blue Glitter 
(Glitter Magic)
on her Braclet and Earrings,
And added 4 Purple Gems
and added a handmade Purple Organza Bow 
(Ribbon from Stash).
