Merry Monday Using Gold, Bronze and Turquiose

Hi friends!  Marcia selected a beautiful photo inspiration for us this week for the Merry Monday Christmas card challenge # 239.
I don't know why I struggled so much with it though.  In the end I am very happy with it, but I will tell you it was something that evolved from nothing that is now on the card!  Ha ha!
I put some bronze perfect pearls on a piece of water color paper and cut out the joy word.  
The background piece from a gold pattern pack from PTI.  
Dies & stamps:  Poppystamps (joy)
PTI: Fab Flakes
Ink:  CPD: Fiesta Blue
PPP clear sequins
I look forward to see what you create with these colors:
copper/bronze, gold and turquoise! 
Have a happy week!
Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Just love your turquoise snowflakes, Colleen - so eye catching! What a pretty "joy" too - love how you used perfect pearls to create the shimmer!

  2. CAS and perfect it! Hope you have a wonderful week my friend!! :0)

  3. Such a pretty CAS style card, have a lovely week.

  4. Super pretty!! Love the gold and blue!!

  5. You do the most unique things. I would never think to put Perfect Pearls on paper and cut a sentiment from it - that is very clever and looks great. I love blogging for learning from others. This is a pretty design a great take on the challenge.

  6. Sweet!! Beautiful mix of colours and great design. Love your patterned paper background. xx

  7. Unique & beautiful, Colleen--great use of the color combo!

  8. Love the turquoise snowflakes Colleen, pretty CAS Christmas card.

  9. Pretty card! I struggled with this week's color challenge too. (Took me two tries to make a card!) but I thought the colors looked so nice together had to keep trying.

  10. Colleen, your card is so elegant! Love those turq snowflakes - they really pop! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  11. Nicely done! Such a great use of each color and they look great together. I tried something but the turquoise wasn't turquoise. Ha


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
