Merry Christmas

Happy Friday!!!
I am so glad for the weekend.  I have been working on a grant that goes out on Monday and I am exhausted!
Tonight I have a mostly monochrome Christmas card for you.
I fell in love with this stamp when I laid eyes on it.  It's Penny Black's Ornamental Mimi.  I colored her with several shades of Copic purples with a little peachy pink for her dress.  The dies are from MFT.  I added Swarovski crystals to the border and dotted the "i" in Christmas.  The purple paper is metallic from Wassau.  You can't tell that the paper is sparkly from the photo.
I used the sketch from Fetch-A-Sketch I am also entering the following challenges:
Christmas Stampin - non-traditional colors (purple/peach)
Thanks for stopping by!
