On the 2nd day of Christmas......

Welcome to Day 2 of the Daily Dare's 12 Days of Christmas challenge! You can visit this post on the challenge blog to find out more about the meaning and inspiration behind this series of challenges.

It's my turn to host, which means I get to give out a challenge and give away a gift to the winner! The prize package for this challenge comes from my good friend Sue at Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co.! Heart and Soul believes that it’s possible to make a difference in someone’s life by sharing your time and talents with those around you - maybe even an eternal difference by sharing God’s Word with them! They have a wide selection of rubber stamps, including some of my favorite encouraging sentiments and verses (a few designs by me too, if you look around!).

Well, if you visit the Heart & Soul website, it will be no surprise to you that Sue's favorite color is purple! Purple is also known as a color of royalty, and a beautifully appropriate color for Epiphany, the celebration of the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus. Soooooooo, our challenge to you is to create a Christmas card incorporating the color purple. You will receive a bonus entry if you use the same colors I did: purple/eggplant, olive green, and grey! (The color names noted below are the specific pencils I used - yours don't have to be the same!)
My card uses the Amaryllis stamp from Heart and Soul - the amaryllis is a beautiful bulb flower that blooms at Christmas time. I used colored pencils to color in the image.If you'd like to play along with this challenge, we'd love to have you join us! You have until January 9th to participate in any of the 12 challenges - or all of them! You can upload your card to the Splitcoast Gallery and tag it with the keyword: DD12days02
