Merry Monday #48

Lesley is mixing things up once again at Merry Monday.  This week we are doing a color challenge.  This one was truly a challenge for me.  Many of the DT members opted to go the snowman route....hence the orange nose.  I decided to go out of the box with an ultra modern Christmas card!  Here is a look at the color scheme.  I chose Sunset, Crystal Blue, and Slate for my colors.

I cut all of the chevrons with a die by MFT and then layered them to make my own background paper.  The peace saying was cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1790 Cricut Artiste Cartridge
