Pretty pastels

Hello lovely people,

My day off yesterday was filled with shopping, a haircut and a spot of exercise - all good stuff but not so much time for crafting :-(
I did receive an enormous parcel of goodies from Sarah's Cards though with some amazing paper pads so I can't wait to play with those!

And now it's Thursday so it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this time is...


We are also super excited to be sponsored for this challenge by All Dressed Up Stamps so the winner will get to pick 2 digi images of their choice :-)

I have gone for sugary sweet pastels this time... mostly pink of course!  Oh, and those all important punched and die cut elements which add a lovely girly feel I think :-)

I have used one of the super cute ADU digi stamps and I am so sorry but she isn't actually available in the store but if you pop over there are many other lovely images to choose from.

Card recipe;
DP: Vintage summer basics - Maja Design
Dies: Memory box cherry blossoms and fancy blossoms, Magnolia Doohickey leaf and swirl
Punch: Martha Stewart deep edge punch - fans and flourishes
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts (smaller pink ones coloured with RV91 Copic)
Pearls: Wild Orchid Crafts (some coloured with Copics)

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/21/11
Hair: E25/27/29/47
Dress / bow: RV0000/000/91/93
Wings: RV0000/000/91 & BG0000/70
Butterflies / bow: BG000/70/72
Ground: T0/1/2/3

If you pop over to In The Pink you can check out the fabulous creations from my teamies and I hope you will join in with our challenge.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Kat xx
