Merry Monday #248

Greetings friends!  Today our Merry Maker is Marcia and she has selected some gorgeous colors for us to use on our Christmas card this week at the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge.
I know it doesn't look like it but the strip on the left is really a green called limeade ice.

Marcia wants us to use turquoise, green and purple on our card.
I first used versamark and embossed the greenery from WPlus9 Happy holidays.
I then did a wash with the turquoise brusho and kind of made it ombre with darker at the top.
I die cut the ornament from PTI What the Doodle: Ornament and watercolored it in with zigs.
I hope you will take the time to play along with us...and please go check out what the design team has made to inspire you with those colors!
Heart Hugs, friends!
