Another red and purple Christmas card

The friend who asked me to make the previous card, asked me to also make this one, supplying me with the photo.

Yet again, I thought that I'd go with the purple and red theme, using the same background purple matt foil card and music vellum that I used for the previous card, this time using a giant purple snowflake instead of the chipboard swirl and some more of the poinsettias courteous of one of the BF secret santas.

This is good for these challenges:

365 cards day 235: 'Wacky color Wednesday' - red, purple, brown (the wall behind the group and the background of the sentiment)
Saturday spotlight 10: 'Christmas flowers'
Sketchy colors (Norway) 1: 'color: purple/lilac'
Allsorts 30: purple
Kaboodle 19: 'snowflakes'
Sophisticat 13: 'snowflakes and sparkle'
Design Dollies elements challenge: 'Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow - snowflakes'
Creatalicious 4:'include snowflakes and lots of sparkle'
2 red bananas: 'Christmas/winter card'
Pollycraft: 29 'Ria's wonderful Christmas time'
Creative card crew 39: 'Christmas'
Spoon full of sugar 80: 'non-traditional Christmas colours' (I know that red is traditional, but purple isn't)
All that scraps: 'anything Christmas'
Stampavie and more 72: 'Christmas'
Crafty Calendar 3: 'winter sparkle'
My time to craft 68: 'winter pals!'

Don't forget: My blog candy closes at midnight tonight. If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it! I now have 100 followers, so I'll be adding something more to the blog candy.
