Cutie Pie DT Card - Pefectly Purple

It's challenge time again at Cutie Pie, this fortnight our theme is "Perfectly Purple" and we're sponsored by Pink Gem.  We'd love for you to get your purple on and play along, but please remember to make it CUTE.  We've been getting a lot of non cute entries, and, unfortunately, no matter how beautiful they are, they can't be considered for a prize or top three place unless they are cute.
Pink Gem kindly supplied the DT with digis for this challenge, I've used the super sweet Angelica with Snowman, which I've coloured with Promarkers.
 I covered a card blank with purple paper, then die cut a piece of dark purple card, the same size as the blank, with my Memory Box Frostyville Border die, down the right hand side.  I then sprayed the die cut piece with iridescent Spray and Sparkle, and matted a piece of Lili of the Valley Woodland Wishes paper on to it, followed by the coloured topper.
To embellish, I layered some purple Christmas Anita's ribbon over some silver, sparkly, tufty, fibrey stuff, that I found a reel of, topped with a bow.  I also stamped a sentiment in Dusty Concord Distress Ink, using a Papermania Home for Christmas stamp, punched some snowflakes with a Nellie Snellen punch, and finished with assorted purple gems, and doodled, dotted border on the plain purple paper.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
The Glory of Christmas - #44 - Snowman
We Do Doobadoo - #16 - Christmas
Craft for the Craic - #9 - Something Suitable for a Child
Fab 'n' Funky - #232 - Anything with Ribbon
Scrapper's Delights - #33 - Anything Goes or Monochrome
As You Like It - Favourite Fibre and Why - Mine is ribbon, I love satin, grosgrain, velvet, saddle stitch, any ribbon!  I have reels and reels of the stuff, printed and plain, in every colour under the sun.  I love tying it in bows, often multi loop bows and I have so many colours that I can match it to almost any project.
