DCM Tearing purple holes for Christmas and CPS #29

We were promised a stinker this week and we weren't disappointed. The DCM challenge this week was to make a Christmas Card but........it had to have some Purple, some torn paper and yikes... a hole! This one had me well out of my comfort zone, pretty sure I have never made a purple Christmas card before, don't make many purple cards for that matter but after hours and hours I finally came up with this one, conveniently using the CPS sketch #29 which I have also struggled with this week!
Supplies: purple bazzill cardstock, light purple pearlescent card, pink mulberry paper, small snowflake punch, Studio G tiny clear stamps for the greeting, clear embossing powder, black ink and the very gorgeous snowflakes are from Papercraft, Midori which was a pack sent to me as a gift from my friend who lives in Malaysia, thanks Wendy!
