Celebrating the Season in Pastels

Hello Crafty Friends,

I sure hope you have enjoyed your day. My hubby and I went shopping and have just about  everything done for Christmas. One final run tomorrow and we should be all set. Monday morning will be spent cleaning and cooking before company arrives for a Christmas Eve celebration. Then we wait for Santa!
 Now I have another holiday card. After the black, white, and red Santa card yesterday I wanted to incorporate soft, pastel colors.  I also love how doilies look. It is only the second or third time using one, but I am attracted to the intricate cuts and the varieties you can buy.
I used four different pattern papers (MME ~ Merry) as part of the 12 Days of Christmas at Frosted Designs ~Day 4.
This festive tree was cut at 2 1/4" from the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge.
The pink bow adds a feminine touch to an ordinary tree.

Other Challenges:
Weekly Christmas Card Challenge ~ Doilies
Celebrate the Occasion ~ Christmas Anything

Hope you enjoy your last weekend before the BIG day.
Happy Holidays,
