Very Merry

So, here it is: November!  Can you believe it's here already?!  It is time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is anything Christmas-related goes all month long.  We'd love to have you join us.  It is time to get working on those Christmas cards if you haven't already.  As it is every month, our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my card:
I had purple out for the card I made for my previous post and decided to use it again.  I really love purple for Christmas cards; it's so regal looking (purple is the color of royalty after all).  The purple dotted paper reminds me of falling snow and I played up that theme with all the die cut snowflakes.  I really like the look of the vellum snowflake.  Unfortunately, it doesn't show it's true softness in the photo.

Challenges:
Time Out Challenges #17--birds of a feather flock together (penguins do have feathers, I think)
Holly Jolly--bingo (I used the diagonal row glitter, 2 dp, diecuts)
Word Art Wednesday #156--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Crafter's Cafe #88--things with wings
Paper Pretties #334--polka dots
The Stamping Chef #53--anything goes
Fab n Funky #235--Christmas
Divas by Design--anything goes
ABC Christmas--V is for Very Merry
The Paper Shelter #180--Is it too early for Christmas
The Cutie Pie Challenge #80--Perfectly Purple and Completely Cute

Supplies:
Stamps: Bugaboo Stamps "Little Penguin Winter" digi; Verve "Merry & Bright" (Have a very) and "Ornamental Christmas" (Merry Christmas)
Dies: PTI "Fancy Flakes" "Snow globe Shaker die" (I used the little snowflakes that are meant to go in a shaker); spellbinders Matting Basics A2 rectangles
Papers: DCWV (ooooollldddd)
