Lime & Lavender Ornaments

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Have you been enjoying all the fabulous new Christmas stamps? I don't know about you, but in the heat of summer, making winter cards gives me something cool to concentrate on. My card today has some non-traditional colors and came about as I was working on another card. I came across this very small left over rectangle made ages ago. It's on a piece of coated card stock & the colors came from placing pieces of tissue paper on top & misting w/ water (i.e. bleeding tissue technique). I can't even remember what I made w/ the rest of it, but it was just enough to black emboss the ornaments on & do a little out of the box die cutting on them. I added some lime sparkle, lavender & dusky purple layers and stamped the greeting on the last remaining strip & die cut w/ a pennant die. 
Just to add a little sumthin' sumthin', I used a little Wink of Stella on every other stripe & the center star on the ornaments & bows. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...this week, You Left Me Hanging...have something hanging or dangling!

Pretty!! The lavender adds a little extra "coolness"! I'm with Karin - I didn't know you could make such a fantastic background with tissue paper! Learn something new everyday :)
