Purple Christmas

Sometimes I get tired of every Christmas card being all red and green, so I went with some different colors.  The image is colored with glitter pens and mica powder paints, so it looks really sparkly.  I wanted to go with a low-key background, so I fished through my scraps for pink, purple, and blue to match the color challenge at Blessings Ink, embossed them, and pieced together a nice colorblocked background.
I really like this vintage image from a•muse studio - it's classic without being religious.
