Time Out Challenge #43 with a twist - Purple Christmas!

Purple, you ask?  Why not?  I found the most wonderful purple wood-grain paper in one of my [barely used] 12 x 12" pads ... see if you can see it ... it was a bugger to photograph!


Pure and simple purple with gold heat-embossed sentiment and embellishments ... these beauties [excluding the beads] come from Wplus9 ... more of those boughs on Thursday at CTS!

It doesn't get more purple than this, Time Out!  Hope you like it!
