Purple Baubles

Yet another Christmas card, this time a DL card to ring the changes.  I don't make enough of these, I always enjoy the long, thin shape and the interesting layouts that can be achieved with this shape.
 The papers are from a Lili of the Valley pad called Snow Princess, to which I've added deep purple and white card for matting.  I also used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch to make a decorative strip down the left hand side.  I used the snowflake-shaped waste from the punch to embellish the backing paper.
The baubles were made with Spellbinders dies, from three shades of purple card, and were embellished with tiny purple gems, topped with white bows, then hung from lengths of baker's twine from the top of the card.
The final touch was to add a sprinkling of gems to the background.
