It's A Christmas In July ABC

Well hello there! Are you enjoying the Christmas In July festivities this week, at Catch The Bug?! The Design Team sure is having fun! We hope you are, too! Hopefully you've been playing along in our daily challenges, too!

Today, our challenge theme, today, is to use a particular color scheme, for your project. You can see the color scheme today, over in today's challenge post, at Catch The Bug - But, basically, the colors are shades of green, purples and pinks.

Today is normally ABC day at Catch The Bug - so Its my assigned day to do an ABC - Anything But A Card.  I chose to do this fun Christmas Ornament. I used a miniataure train track from Mayberry Street Miniatures, painted it with Silks Acrylic Metallic Green paint and used lavender ribbon to hang it. Then, I attached this fun image, Christmas Kids - Boy 2, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I thought it was pretty creative! What do you think about it?!

I am entering this ABC in the following challenge:
