Pastel Colours at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all okay and your week is going well.  Sorry I haven't been around much the last couple of days.  I am feeling a bit under the weather at the moment so just trying to plod on.  Hopefully, it won't last long and I will soon be feeling better.

Anyway, as it is Wednesday a new challenge starts today over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Pastel Colours
As always, you are free to enter any project as long as it fits with the challenge theme.
We have two great sponsors for you this week.
StampArt - a prize of 5 digi images to the winner
Sassy Studio - a prize of 4 digi images to the winner

Here is my inspiration project using a lovely image from StampArt called Gracie, who can be found here.

As you can see I went for an easel card this week.  The image was coloured in promarkers before adding some chalk (although you can't see it very well) to represent the sky and grass.  I created a frame for the image using one of my memory box frame dies.  The backing paper is from my freebie magazine paper box and I have had it for a good year or more.  For the base of the easel card I added some ribbon, a sentiment and some lovely pink buttons.  The daisy border is from my stash box and I added some gems for added sparkle.  A litte butterfly was the final finishing touch.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to upload your entry.  Don't forget to check out the awesome creations from my teamies.

Such a pretty card. I really like how the base is shorter than the usual card I see. It gives it a whole different look that is very pleasing. Pretty details and a soft colour palette showcase the sweet image beautifully. Thanks for joining our Up in the Air/Things That Can Fly Challenges at Craft your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
