Pastel Christmas

I don't know about you but I have a hard time making pastel cards. Period. I really like these challenges for Christmas in July and this one for Cupcake Cards Challenge was to make one in pastels. Here is my take on it:
Cartridge used: Joy of the Season
Ice skate cut at 2 1/2 "
Paper used from my stash. I used an EK success border punch. I "laced" the ice skate with some light pink thread and added some SU dimensionals on it. The snowflakes and the sentiment are from a Hero Arts stamp set. I used Platinum Dew Drop ink to stamp the snow flakes and SU's Close to Cocoa to stamp the sentiment.

Cupcake - Pastel Christmas

Thanks for looking!
