DCM- Tearing Purple Holes for Christmas

Well, I finally got a new card on my blog YIPPIE!!!!. And it's all thanks to the new Friday dare from DCM. Here's what we had to do...... the time has come for our first Christmas card dare of 2007. But as loads of you have already shown some fab Christmas cards on your blogs, we thought we'd make things a little more Daring, interesting, tricky or downright mean - depending on your point of view!
So, we'd like you to make and show a Christmas card which incorporates the following:
Some Paper Tearing
The colour Purple
AND
It has to have at least one hole somewhere in the design!

So here's what I came up with. I've used a purple ribbon and a purple strip of paper- which I have torn. I made the Christmas trees on my Silhouette, they have holes for baubles. I made the frill on the top of the card by punching six circles then punching a hole in the middle of each before attaching them to the card.
