Dreaming of a "Purple & Silver" Christmas

I have never ever ever thought to make a silver and purple Christmas card...ever. However, how fun this was to create after all.  Thanks to Christina from Our Creative Corner who has challenged my out of the box thinking with the theme Silver and Purple for this weeks theme! 
Purple and silver inked background with a handmade Bingo card and digitally inserted silver Santa.  A few handmade crocheted items and silver buttons and purple bows with last but not least a silver colored bingo chip. 
I hope you'll head on over and submit that last minute Silver and Purple Christmas card that you might need to make and while you're there, please check out the amazing works of my teammates!
This will be the final post of the month for Our Creative Corner as we're taking a little Christmas break, so don't miss out on the last challenge of the year.  We'll return the first week of the New Year!
Hugs n' Happy Stamping to you all,
Lisa xx

Purple and silver.... glad you did Lisa - this is absolutely stunning! I Love the eclectic look you created with the bingo card and Santa right there in the corner! Looks like a fabulous collage of goodness!

Cool! A crocheted banner. Now that just rocks Twang. The silver and purple really are a stunning combo but you're going to go on the naughty list for letting the cat out of the bag that Santa is a closet BINGO addict. hee hee Hick

Hello Q
I never know how to work a Bingo card into a design, but as usual if there is anyone who could do it and lift it to the next level it would be you!
Your little crocheted flower, Santa image and the number 25 button makes for a unique and interesting Christmas card, but also it is gorgeous.

Really very nice Lisa - just think - it almost spells Sandy! Purple is the color of Royalty and you know Miss Lisa - I know you better than you think I do. What could be more appropriate for Christmas than purple and silver. Now your Santa - how wonderful he is - and laying a finger aside of his nose -- what no chimney!!!!!!
Love everything you do oh talented friend!!
Sandy
