This time inspired by my Christmas card from Mum, all the way from NZ.  I really liked the main design of Mum’s card, though I took it a step further and embossed the image with holographic embossing powder.

Yep, I’m definitely in a purple mood.

Dry Embossing is the theme at Make My Monday

I’ve enjoyed using some of my favourite colours.

Gorgeous cards - I love how you rock both the CAS & Arty-Farty styles :) Purple's a fave of mine too, works so well with green. The effect of the sky behind the trees is beautiful in its texture. Pxx
