A Birthday in Pastel Shades.

Hello my lovely visitors and welcome to my blog.  So pleased you dropped by.

June and July are fairly busy months for me as far as card making goes.  Lots of rellies and friends having birthdays .. luckily I do have some cards in reserve but I still have quite a few to make as well.  The inspiration for the card I am sharing today came from the pastel coloured papers I found in my stash.

I was looking for something light and pretty and these papers were perfect.  They are from an older Kaisercraft collection but I have no idea which one.  

Coloured the flowers with some watered down acrylic paint.

Lots of layers  .. papers and different laces.

 Added a small piece of gauze, a twine bow, a gem spray and a chipboard piece from 2Crafty Chipboard.

The flowers and the laces are all available from Megs Garden.

The leaves were cut with my Silhouette Portrait.  Awesome little machine!!

Two pockets on the inside .. one for a gift voucher and the other for a personal message written on a journal card.

Some splashes of white paint to finish!!  Done!!

I am really happy with the way this card turned out .. and it came together quite quickly too.  Simply went with the flow.   So, I guess I haven't lost my mojo where cards are concerned.  Yayy!!

Thank you so much for dropping by and for any little comment you may care to leave.
Take care, stay safe and God Bless.

Creativity is contagious.  PASS it on.
