Color Challenge at Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time!
And it's the last one until September.

It's  Colleen's choice this week.

Since I was recently enabled to buy this ornament die,
I was delighted to have a good excuse to use it.

I just happened to have some blue and platinum Inka Gold pieces.

I die cut the ornament from silver and gold foil as well as the Inka Gold.

I even found a sparkly, silver snowflake in my stash to make the ornament more ornate.

Since I used some snippets on this card (the foil and smoosh), I'm going to 

I'm also going to visit 
where we bring a Christmas card every month.
The challenge runs from the 25th through the end of the month.

I hope you'll join us at
Merry Monday
for our final challenge before summer break!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Can you hear me going "aaah"? This is so beautiful, and your inlay inca pieces look SO 3-dimensional. Love the die (you deserved it, yes you did!) and you've certainly shown it to maximum advantage on the beautiful, CAS card. Also love that gorgeous bird that flew in this morning. (actually he'd arrived earlier and was waiting on the porch. Neighbor called to ask if I knew there were pkgs by the front door!) TFS & Hugs

When I looked at your card Bonnie, the first thought that came to mind me was that you locked the bauble in a piece of heaven ... is an extraordinary feeling and a wonderful card. A slice of heaven for a person who gets this card for the holidays ... wow, this is something wonderful!
