Cool Colors

I have another warm colors card to post, but today I've gone back to cool colors.
First up is my color blocking card for PTI MIM.  Marlena used What the Doodle Snowflakes for her Blog Hop card which reminded me that I haven't opened that stamp set yet.  
I bought it because the images are beautiful, even without coloring. Love how they look clear embossed on colored cardstock: Winter Wisteria, Lavender Moon & Aqua Mist.  The sentiment from the same set is silver embossed on vellum & Nuvo silver glitter dots & a little silver bow add some sparkle.  I'm also entering Rudolph DaysHLS Christmas Challenge & SSS Wednesday.

Next is my entry for the July Winnie & Walter Color Challenge--beautiful & refreshing!  
I decided Brilliance Pearlescent Jade (looks blue to me) & Pearlescent Lime were pretty good matches, so I blended a panel with each of them.
Then I die cut each with W&W The Leaf Effect Cutaway.  The lime leaves were glued into the jade frame & of course, I have the opposite also ready to use.  
My favorite W&W Hello die was stacked 3 high with 2 layers of white cardstock for the shadow of the top glitter layer.  Hugs is done with Tim Holtz stickers & a few PPP clear confetti mix dots for a fun embellishment.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies,  DRU, SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  We enjoyed a cloudy morning, so Fritz & I could actually walk more than a few feet down the street--haha! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
Edited to add: Also entering SSS Work it Wednesday.

  5. Such a pretty snowflake card with the three panels. You really are getting a good pile of Christmas cards ready to go! The crisp, clean look of the blue/green card is simplicity at it's best. TFS
