Mistletoe bough

I love using analogous colours and used this turquoise and lime combination as a non-traditional Christmas colour choice.  I wanted a tone on tone effect and lots of texture. 

I used two embossing folders and two patterned papers, and the plain coloured card has inked edges. The sentiment diecut and mistletoe diecut are multi-layered.  The flake is raised above the chopped up tulle; pearl added.
