Merry Monday ~ Ornaments

I started out by using some distress inks on my craft sheet and then placing my water color paper on the inks...kind of smeared it around to be sure it was all covered.
Then I die cute the  Memory Box "classic ornament" die.
I used the Memory Box "Snowflake Ornament die with white shimmer paper
and laid it on top of my colored solid image.
I took a strip of paper and using the blue and greed distress inks placed it to color it.
That is what I used for my side panels.
The sentiment is from PTI Rustic Wreath and embossed with Zing "leaf" embossing powder.
Merry Monday ~ Ornaments  is the theme for this week's challenge.
 
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
