Ist Xmas card of 2015!

Hi everyone I'm cutting it really fine today as I wanted to join in the challenge over at Less is More and a new challenge that Mynnette is running. I'm going to try and make a Christmas card each week ( yeah, yeah I hear you all say! ) and that's what Mynnette's challenge is all about but first here is the theme over at Less is More:

We have a super
  Colour Challenge
for you this time... with a little personal choice for you too!


DO  keep your designs uncluttered and remember to include that white space!

                                                                Here is my card:

I embossed a piece of lilac card and matted it onto black and silver card and cut it into a banner.
The bauble is a MB one that I cut twice in black and silver to give the shadow effect and the flourish is a Marianne one. The sentiment is an SU one and I added a tiny bit of glitter to the embossing.

Mynnette's new challenge is :
Hello, friends!  Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas!  We are a weekly challenge devoted to the holiday season--year round! ;)  How does this challenge work?  It's easy!  We give you a card to CASE and you CASE it!

If you've never CASEd a card, here's what you need to do:
  1. Look at the CASE card photo.
  2. Be inspired by some element of the card.  This could be colors, layout, image, etc.
  3. Make a card based on that inspiration.
See!  Easy peasy!  We cannot wait to see what you have for us this week and each week this year!  Are you ready for this week's CASE card?!  

Here it is...
This is a card by Pat on the DT
So I think you can see where I was going with my card :)
Have a good weekend and I'd like to welcome Mary who has kindly joined my followers.
