Pretty Pastels

Good morning everybody

I hope you are having a good Easter break, and just remember - don't eat too much chocolate.  I was looking at the divine Easter Eggs the other day in a shop and was so tempted - but restrained myself - just can't do it at the moment!

Anyway, on to the One Stop Craft Challenge.  Our theme this week is Pastels with Die Cuts, and there are some fabulous pieces of work from the design team, so please pop across.  We were very lucky this week to be given some images from the lovely Heather Ellis to play with.

Our inspiration was this photograph, which has some of my favourite colour roses in it, so right up my street.

I have coloured with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, and the image has distress ink sponged around the edge.  The papers were from a freebie pack, and other cardstock from stash.  I have embellished with a Memory Box corner, pearls and some flowers from stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Catch the Bug - April Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' - Dies and Doodles
Card Making Mamas - Easter
Raise the Bar - Easter
Sweet 'n' Sassy - Easter and a Digi

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,

  2. Hi Val, I've pinched a few hours this weekend for a mammoth catchup on my favourite blogging buddies. I've had a good look back at all the beautiful creations I've been missing out on. You have made some gorgeous cards and this one is no exception. So pretty and feminine in those lovely pastels. Cute image too.

    Hope you're keeping well.
