Christmas Card Club #13: Pastels with a Circle

I'm late with my Christmas Card Club offering. Sorry, ladies. I had it scheduled for tomorrow instead of today. So here it is... finally, my take on the challenge set by Clare: Use Pastel Colours and a Circle. 

Made a square card with papers are from Papermania's Mistletoe Kisses 6x6 pad. Just a few embellies on this one: blue bling and ribbon. 

The stamp is from Chocolate Baroque's "Christmas Song" set. I stamped the holly in Memento Cottage Ivy,  the robin in Rich Cocoa and a splash of Promarker Lipstick red for his breast.

On the inside, a sentiment from Chocolate Baroque's Warm Christmas Greetings, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.

There you have it - my very late card for Christmas Card Club. I'll see ya tomorrow, in the meantime have a blessed Sunday!
