Daughter's Purple Christmas Card

Ever since any of us can remember, purple has been daughter Val's favourite colour for anything and everything.  So every card I make for her has to be purple, no matter the occasion!  So this is her purple Christmas card for this year.  :-)
I stamped the larger poinsettia from my "Vintage Christmas" stamp set for Whimsy Stamps onto brown card stock.  It isn't "kraft" but it looks like it (kinda).  I wanted to use pencil crayons this time for the colouring.  I got inspired by Annika, who has been doing a lot of pencil crayon colouring these days.  I used Copic White in places when I was done to intensify the white in places.
The sentiment inside was done using a digital sentiment by Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs, also for Whimsy Stamps.   It is from her "Christmas Sentiments" collection.   I simply brought it into my Photoshop Elements program to add some colour with the paint bucket tool.  Fun!
Enjoy your holidays folks!  I know I will!  Thanks for coming by today!
