Pastels at Christmas

Let me state right from the start that I am REALLY NOT a pastel person.  Pastels are pretty, but I prefer and really LOVE bold and bright colors, so these two cards are a real departure from my "norm".
I have had this Darcie's Merry Moment Snowmen stamp set for a couple years...I also LOVE snowmen... I stamped on white and pastels, deciding to paper piece the snowman's clothes in pastels....
I used  a white gel pen for all the stripes and enamel accents for the snow and at the ends of the scarves.
The other card was inspired by a sweater I saw at Target while shopping with my daughter the other day.  The sweater was gray and mint green!!  I had never seen those two colors together, but LOVED the look of mint and gray!!!!  So...with a Mc Gill starburst punch, some glossy accents and a sentiment from the first stamp set, I made this....
Hope you are having a great weekend!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
