CHNC challenge 289 - Colour - purple

The current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge is to use the colour 'purple' and this is my offering:
I used:

- 4" x 5.75" white card blank

- piece of white card, embossed using Crafts-Too's 'Scrollwork Frame' embossing folder, trimmed to exactly the same size of the card front and glued in place

- snippets of gold and purple mirri card, backed with Stick-It adhesive sheet and die cut using a Memory Box 'Cabrini Ornament' die

- snippet of gold mirri card, backed with Stick-It adhesive sheet and die cut using a Memory Box 'Curled Ribbons' die

- stuck the ornament outline die cut in place first, with purple and gold infills and then added the gold curled ribbon die cut next

Made a couple of cards the same, nice and quick as well - if you discount the fact that I actually die cut four (two gold and two purple) tree ornaments from the back at first - grrrrrrr.

I'd also like to enter this card into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for July, where it's always 'anything goes'.

Plus, I took inspiration from the current challenge over at Jingle Belles, which is 'ombre/colours of Christmas' so I'd like to join in there as well. This is the wonderful photo they provided as inspiration:
I didn't go with the ombre look, although isn't it just fabulous! I spied purple tree ornaments plus the gold layer and twirly bits at the top of the tree :) And of course the crisp white.
