Merry Monday #267 - Green, Blue & White/Silver/Vellum

Hey everyone - hope all my US readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I got out my Christmas tree but am nowhere near finished decorating it!! Now, let's get to the business of the day - another Merry Monday challenge!


For challenge #267 Colleen would like us to use the colors green & blue plus with white, silver or vellum. Fantastic color combo!! Here's what I created:

Supplies: Paper - Poptone Snow Cone; Lawn Fawn Let's Bokeh in the Snow; 
American Crafts Christmas; Neenah Brights & Solar White
Stamp & Cut - Hero Arts DC166 Merry & Bright Tag Set by Lia (retired)
Additional Dies - My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20 (retired);
Ink - Lucky Clover & Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks
Other - foam tape; DCWV gem stickers; 3M glitter tape; May Arts ribbon

I just love the tag Stamp & Cut sets from Hero Arts! They don't sell them on their site anymore but luckily Simon Says Stamp still has some of them (unfortunately this one's out of stock). I have them all and wish Hero Arts would make more styles! I've made quite a few cards with the snowflake tag (see one here) so decided to show some love to one of the other tags. My pale blue card washed out a bit in the photo but it's the same color as the tag. I backed the tag with a circle of glitter paper, then layered it with white and green for contrast against the bokeh background. I had embossed a tag with a silver sentiment but didn't like it - instead went with plain blue ink. I couldn't resist a strip of silver tape to anchor my tag, despite having used white for a layer and the bow.

Hope you have time to play along with us this week! And be sure to check out all the inspiration from the wonderful Design Team members at Merry Monday. Thanks for stopping!!
