The Reason!

I love traditional red and green for Christmas, but sometimes it is fun to use an unexpected color for a totally different look!  The soft purple tones of this Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather designer paper are a great alternative!

I kept the layout simple, and let this powerful sentiment speak for itself!  A sheer ribbon and jute bow, and a lacy snowflake topped with a paper rose add some elegance.  I love the symbolism...purple is the color of royalty, appropriate for the King of kings, the Rose of Sharon!
