Weekly Winners!

What an amazing gallery of cards you created for the challenge last week! Thank you so much for joining us here at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge :) 



Our winner this week chosen by our wonderful Debbie is:





How appropriate that this week's color challenge was purple. I had not planned this for any particular reason but want to mention the passing of Prince this past week and how perfect that we were all featuring purple in our projects. 

I picked Eliz's card because I love how she embossed the purple layer and used it as her background layer to make her other elements really pop. The clear gemstones and silver sequin stars are so adorable to finish off her card. Congrats for being chosen as my winner Eli!
