Traditional or Pastel

There are so many new color combinations out there for Christmas which do you prefer? The traditional, vintage or pastel? I actually like all of them it just depends on what mood I'm in and depends on who the gift is for. The cards today showcase the brand new digital images from Pink Cat Studio that are available for purhcase today!! The first is Lily in her Winter Coat.
I love that she has a muff to keep her hands warm and I also love using flowersoft to make it look as if it were a real one. Now that I look at it, I probably should have used a different color for it since it doesn't show up well in the photos.
This next image is Lily dressed as a snowflake fairy, which happens to be one of my favorite images. She reminds me of the cute little sanrio kids called The Little Twin Stars. They were usually colored in pink and blue. Do you remember them too? Anyway, I like this color combo with the added silver bling and cardstock it gives a cool and wintery feel.
I have also added some white flowersoft to her little sweater, glitter for her wings and bling for the snowflake. Be sure to check out the rest of the cards from the DT HERE. Hang in there everyone, the weekend is near!

I love the pastel colours for the cute modern styles of stamps, and especially pink and blue together - love your card! but then again, I love the traditional red and green with a more traditional style of stamp - and purple is another colour I like!

Hi Jodi,
Both of your cards are super awesome and cute!
I love the traditional card, the reds and greens are fab! But, like you, everything depends on the mood. Your pastel card is gorgeous!!! Lily swinging from the snowflake is so cute! The soft colors are fab and the details totally rock!
