Non Traditional Colored Winter Wonderland

Saturday is here and it's time for a new challenge at Catch The Bug! Our theme, this week, is Winter Wonderland. Unfortunately, we are knee deep in  Winter right now, so this is the perfect theme! (I sure do long for warm weather, right now, though!) We want you to create some fabulous Winter Wonderland projects to share with us - You might even win one of our awesome digi prize packs from Bugaboo Stamps, as a prize! What are you waiting for? Come play along with us!

I know Christmas just passed, but I thought I would get a head start on Christmas cards for next year.  I went with non-traditional colors, for this one. My card uses the image, Snowman Patches, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I used purple glittered ribbon, purple pearls and a lavender flower to embellish.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
