Merry Monday Christmas

The current colour  challenge at Merry Monday is to use 'Lime, Turquoise and White' - not colours I would normally use for Christmas cards.  I found some card in my snippets drawer, so am also paying a visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk 
Dies: Presscut 'Merry Christmas' and Creative Dies 'Nesting Stars' (magazine freebie)
Other; Wink of Stella
Snippets: Lime green, turquoise and white card

I layered white card onto turquoise and green card before attaching it to the card blank.  I die-cut the sentiment from both green and turquoise card and attached the turquoise 'Christmas' onto the green 'Christmas' to create a shadow effect (and putting the 'Merry' back into my snippets drawer for another day!).  This was then attached to the lower corner of the card. I die-cut a large star from both green and turquoise card and a small star from turquiose and white card.   The turquoise/white star was attached to the card above the sentiment, and the green/turquoise star was attached on the lower edge with foam tape.  To finish, I used a Wink of Stella in the middle of the stars.
