Purple and Black Christmas.. Glitter n Sparkle Weekly Challenge

I coloured the lovely image in with Polychromos onto neenah card,then fussy cut her and the penguin out.. The papers are Papermania from the Digital do crafts I have on my pc ,I used these as I knew I could change the colours to purple ,as you do not get that many pretty ones around ..Once printed off I mounted onto black card stock ,And the centerpiece I drew a rough border around and coloured with CC , SN New Sparkle pens,this I also did to the fur on the images too and the lilac flowers on the embellishments, sadly with the white light no matter how I angle them this does not show ,yet they are very pretty in real time.. For the dies I used Marianne designs for the Pointsetia,,CC ivy die and Tattered Lace for the other dies...I mounted the backing papers onto an 8x8 card base ,then added the other papers as shown..I added the topper with 3D gel glue to give depth and decided to use some silver in the foillage as it is a Christmas card and it would have been a bit dismal in black and purples hence I went with the silver and Lilac..To finish I added some snowflake gems I purchased of Ebay..Get so many bargains on there lol..Thank you for visiting,enjoy your day xx
