Pastel Winter Greetings

Hello friends ~ I'm popping in today with a card that fits perfectly into the Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge.  They have the sweetest mood board to inspire you and it's right up my vintage loving hearts alley.  
So much vintage goodness here!  I was inspired by the soft, pastel colors in each of the tiles above.

I started by making a mini slimline card using Spellbinders Mini Slimline Envelope & Nested Card Creator Dies.  I love all the layering options this die set offers.  

I used Winter Village from Papertrey Ink to create the scene, using soft pastels to match the polka-dotted paper in the background, which is from Prima Marketing "Sweet Peppermint".

The sentiment is cut using Spellbinders Layered Mix & Match Sentiments, using gold shimmer cardstock, backed with a soft aqua cardstock. 

Here's a list of links to the products I used:
Spellbinders Mini Slimline Envelope & Nested Card Creator
Prima Marketing "Sweet Peppermint" (Currently on sale at Scrapbook Maven)

Be sure to visit the Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge to play along!
ETA:  I've also entered this card into the Four Seasons Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes".

Thanks for stopping by!
