Christmas Stampin' All Year Long

Hope everyone is doing well on this beautiful Friday. I'm off to do Halloween parties in 2nd and 4th grade today. In 2nd grade we'll be making globes out of pumpkins and in 4th grade we'll be making care packages for our troops to send out for the upcoming Veterans Day holiday. I went through my card stash last night and picked out 30 cards to add to the care packages. It feels good to know that they'll be going to a good home and surprising a soldiers loved one in the mail.

Today is also challenge day over at the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog! The assignment this week is to use purple and silver on your card. I absolutely love these colors for a holiday card. Here's what I came up with using all Stampin Up goodies.
The sponging technique was totally inspired by Michelle Zindorf and the snowflake was stamped with Versamark and popped up on dimensionals. For the silver requirement, I wrapped some yummy silver cording around the card base and adhered the trimmed ends beneath the main image panel.
I hope you'll play along with us this week. We've only got about another month of challenges and then we're all finished! Thanks for stopping by today. Have a super weekend and a Happy Halloween.
