Pastel Colours - Alphabet Challenge blog

Morning all and welcome to another Friday.  This week over on 
our letter is 
"P" For Pastel colours. 
Here's my DT card for the challenge 

I received some new Cheery Lynn dies in the post the another day from 
Sweet Stamps I just love this XL dies and they make gorgeous easel cards. 
This is an older Tilda Stamp I decided to try and use my older stamps as they are just sitting in the draw and get a little left out and I can't bear to sell them!

I have gone for pastel pinks, greens, lemons and blues for my card
Copic colours 
RV34, 32, 11
YR31, 30
E29, 27, 25, 31
E000, 00, 30, 11, 21, R20

The flowers below are grouped together with an organza flower which came as a 1 meter length so go quite a few.  I picked up from a lovely little shop in Colchester called "Birds in the Barn" they as yet are not selling on the internet but if you get the chance go and visit as it was amazing shop and the staff were really friendly.  

The little d-ring I have attached the ribbon to is really for hanging pictures with and has a hole where the brad is for the nail but I have found a new way to use them and they come in different sizes.  Love finding new ways to use different things, us crafters have lots of imagination!! lol  I have punched out a tiny heart and used crackle paint and distress inks over the top them just added a small metal flower. 

This is the inside of easel card and love the way it turned out.
