Purple. I love it. But on a Christmas card? YES! Thanks to the new “With a Bang” Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground. When I spread my package of new blends out onto the table, this one was the first to pop out at me. I love purple so of course, I was drawn to it. But the elements are gorgeous. There are so many cool pieces that make this blend really stand out. I kept everything shiny and blingy just like the blend!
All papers are from Stampin’ Up as well as the black glitter embossing powder, ribbon and metallic thread. The Santa stamp is from Trinity Stamps. I colored him with Copics and used Stickles on the fur of his hat and coat and Glossy Accents on his boots. And of course, the star of the show is “With a Bang” Sparkles Blend. What better way to showcase a purple Santa!
