Purple Bauble

 Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I have another card for the Holly and Ivy Challenge, where as always it is anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

I used the Sweet Poppy stencil that I got a couple of years ago - so versatile!

I taped it down directly to the card front that I was going to use.

The little village from the snowglobe stamp set was then stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist ink, inside the bauble. 

Memento Ink was then sponged all around the stencil.

I "colored" the little village with just three old Stampin' Up watercolor pencils, purple, gray and black, to keep a monochrome look to the card.

A pretty lilac ribbon was added to the side of the card to finish it off!

That's all for today! I hope I've inspired you to play along in the Holly and Ivy Challenge?

See you soon!
