Christmas with a hint of purple!

I have had this background paper and didn't really know how I was going to work it in with an image.  Decided that since it was mainly cream that it worked well when I was trying to incorporate a non-traditional colour:

I am entering my card into these challenges:
Penny's Paper - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Christmas in July
Just Inspirational - Three layers or more (3)
PINspirational Challenge - Photo Inspiration (Owl)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Jolly Holiday
Clear It Out Challenge - Christmas + Glitter
Glitter n Sparkle - Add Some Purple
Décosse's Dynamite Doodles - Christmas Link Up

I have used a background paper from MME.  I die-cut a holly border from purple shimmer cardstock from DCWV and added some Stickles to the leaves and berries.  The image is from Stitchy Bear Stamps and has been coloured with copic markers plus Stickles.  I matted the image and then layered it over the top of some of the holly border.  I added a sentiment typed on the computer and three clear glitter domes coloured with copic marker V17.

Here is the inspiration picture from Just Inspirational Challenge:
