Merry Monday #248 - A Color Challenge

Hello friends.  I'm the hostess this week for Merry Monday and I have a color challenge for you!  I would love to see turquoise blue, green, & purple.

Aren't those such pretty colors on that wreath?!  Not your traditional Christmas colors for sure, but they are bright, fun and festive, so I'm hoping you all have FUN with this one!  Here's what I came up with:

I wish my purple would have shown up more "purple", but it looks blue to me in my photos....grrrrr!  I started with some Yupo paper and Al inks in Pool, Meadow, & Purple Twilight, and then die cut it with my Impression Obsession Sleigh Scene die.  I die cut again using just plain white cardstock, and then inlaid all the tiny pieces from the Yupo paper.  Here's a closer up view:

It was a little bit time consuming, but well worth the effort!  The sentiment is from PTI's In The Meadow set.

As Darnell would say, I have a "two-fer" for you today.  I had left over inked up Yupo paper, so made another card using a Casual Friday snowflake die from their Bring On The Snowflakes set.

The sentiment on this card is from Casual Fridays also...Snowy Sayings.

Make sure you check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team, and then play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you come up with using TURQUOISE BLUE, GREEN, & PURPLE!  You can find it all right HERE.
