Dynamic Duos Challenge #76 - And the end of a term

This is my final post as a member of the Dynamic Duos design team.  This team's 6 month term has come to it's end.
I've enjoyed working with and getting to know my awesome team mates.  They are an extremely talented group of women and I've learned so much from them.  A big thank you to Lesley for giving me this opportunity!
It's tough to say goodbye, but I'm so excited to see the new team.  I've seen so much talent in the crafters that play along in our weekly challenges.  Will some of you be members of the new team???

Hey, let's move on to this week's challenge, shall we?

Oh...purples.  One of my favorites!   I chose to use this color combo to create a Christmas card.  Not your traditional holiday colors, but I'm really liking it.

This turned out to be one of the quickest cards I've ever made.  I used sticky notes to mask the area over my sentiment, then stamped my snowflakes in Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Crumb Cake.  After removing the masks, I drew a few lines with a black marker.  The final touch was adding a bit of sparkle, here and there, with a Stardust Clear Glitter pen.  This would be a very easy card to mass produce AND an easy one to mail.
Thanks so much for stopping in.  I know I'll be popping to in play along with some of the DD challenges, so I'll see you there!   If you haven't done so already, become one of my blog followers so that I can visit you too!
