One-Layer Simplicity Challenge #19- Strip Down

Well, doesn't that title catch your eye?  This is my first time posting in this challenge, and, since I am trying to do more CAS cards, I thought I'd give this a whirl. Plus, I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and make Christmas cards sooner than November, so here goes.
I masked a strip down the side of my card and sponged 3 inks, 2 Distress Inks, and Delicata Gold ink in the middle, overlapping the red and green inks. You can't really see the shine of the gold ink in this photo, though, unfortunately. A star and a simple jewel embellishment finishes it off.

And, because I might as well do two, I did another strip. I didn't mask off enough area, however, and accidentally sponged ink over the tape and onto the card front. Sigh. So, I trimmed out the strip, and glued it down onto a new card. So this one is technically 2 layers and doesn't qualify for this challenge. However, I jazzed it up with some stamping and some colouring with my Zig markers, and liked it even better than the first one (told you I have trouble with CAS)! Okay...2 down and 28 to go!
