Christmas 2014 - Eggplant and Ivory

If you read a previous post you know that I just ordered a whole pack (50 sheets) of eggplant cs. It is not quite as dark as I had anticipated, and has a shiny finish.  I will be using it a lot, but maybe in smaller bits.  It is white on one side, and goes through my printer, so I can use it for the card base, which I did here.  In order to use this image on a circle I did crop the two "ends" of the image, then masked and added more of the distant stars to the sky.  The bg is Cuttlebug's snowflake, and the punch is Martha Stewart.  The image is Stampendous.
These are the challenges met by this card:

Christmas with twist of  no red or green:
No pattern paper:
Favorite holiday (no question - Christmas):
