Purple and Turquoise Christmas card

Hi Crafty friends, I sliced my finger while crafting today with my craft knife so it's made it almost impossible to type (luckily it was my left index finger and not my right one so I was able to keep cardmaking, there's always a bright side lol). Anyway, so I'll keep it short and sweet as I have 3 cards to post tonight (if I can do them all before bedtime).
