A pastel Christmas card!

  It's Thursday!
I'm officially in pure panic mode now,
 as we count down to Christmas!
I know that I'm not alone.
Most of us are very busy little elves.
I always envy those of you who manage to 
get all of your holiday cards, shopping and wrapping 
done up early.
Every year I say, "Next year I am going to get my holiday cards, shopping and wrapping done early."
I guess the key words that keep messing me up are, "NEXT year".
Just remember, as of right now, 
we still have time to get everything done!
I have a fun card to share!
I used non traditional colors.
and today's FREE sentiment!

Today is day 4 of 
"12 Sentimental Days of Christmas!"
That's right!
12 days of FREE sentiments!
Psst.........Heather has thrown in a beautiful 
Victorian stocking image today!
This month our challenge at
If you use a Fresh Brewed Designs image 
and put a "FBD" after your name,
you will be entered into a drawing for a special prize this month!
I hope that you can join in on the fun!
Fresh Brewed Designs, "Snowman Christmas"
and "Winter wonderland" sentiment
I paper pieced the snowman and colored it with copic markers.
SU cardstock
SU snowflake embossing folder
MFT icicle dienamics
MFT snowflake dienamics
I used an oval scallop nestability and then cut off the top and bottom before dry embossing it with snowflakes.
I used crystal effects and white shimmery glitter for the trim
