Christmas in purple and white

 I took this photo on the Winter Wonderland challenge as my starting point. Using the colours as my inspiration.
I love purple so this was a good excuse to play, however, this is now the last of my purple mirri card boo hoo! Only some tiny scraps left now. I cut a mat with spellbinders resplendent rectangles in white card and embossed in purple the baubles and sentiment from Gourmet rubber stamps. I then used one of the smaller rectangles and cut it in half to mat with purple either side (trying to conserve the mirri card!). The ribbon is IRL almost a match for the mirri card but it doesn't look like it in the photo.
I'd like to enter the card into these challenges:-

Winter Wonderland challenge - photo inspiration
Ooh La La challenge - Christmas sentiment
Creative Craft challenges2 - 3 of something - baubles.

I actually made this card first and went all out using a big piece of the mirri card, but the embossing wasn't really to my liking.
 I then decided to create this using one of the spellbinders marvellous squares dies and the same sentiment.
