Skating mice in non traditional Christmas colors

I'm really behind on my Christmas cards this year, but I tried to get into the spirits by using the Lawn Fawn set of skating mice I did quite a few cards with last year, in addition to stamps from two other Lawn Fawn sets.
The background was made with blue Distress Oxide ink.
A lot of fussy cutting was done, and some elements were raised with foam tape. I heat embossed the heart the mice supposedly have formed with their skates, using white embossing powder.
The sentiment, heat embossed in gold,  is from Concord&9th. I love this one - to me Christmas IS the most wonderful time of the year.

I was inspired by the colors from the Color Throwdown photo.

This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #598
Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog - #23 Anything Goes
ABC Christmas - L is for Love

    What a sweet, immensely lovely wintertime greeting that is every bit as adorable and the season itself is chilly.
