Merry Monday 248:

Happy Monday all!  I hope the weekend was good to you!  I spent a lot of it outdoors doing yard work, now it just needs to warm up so we can enjoy!

This week at Merry Monday, Marcia would like us to create a Christmas card using turquoise, green, and purple:

With such a gorgeous colour combination, I was super excited for this one!  Anything considered Christmas non-traditional, I seem to gravitate towards =)

I clear heat embossed jewel ornaments and coloured them with Zig markers.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Hero Arts Christmas Crystals (?retired), Hero Arts Under the Mistletoe

Die cuts:  none - gasp!
Wow Embossing Powder Clear GlossTim Holtz WaterbrushCanson XL Watercolor paper (140lbs)Zig Clean Color Real Brushes
Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black

I also created this card for the following challenge:

Your coloring/shading is spectacular. I have two Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kits that have similar jewels and I think I'll try making a card like yours. I just didn't know how to use them until you made and shared this. Thank you!
Beautiful! This is the perfect card for the color combo challenge.
