Pretty Pastels for Abigail C.


It's Recipe Tuesday again over at PaperWorksCo and this weeks theme is 'Pretty Pastels' and to use the following recipe on your card/project:-

A pastel colour
2 papers
3 flowers

I must be in a 'try something different' frame of mind at the moment as yellow is not a favourite colour of mine, but when I found this pastel yellow sheet of cardstock and the Doodlebug papers I knew the pink would make everything alright!

I thought Miss Abigail C. would look really pretty using pastel colours.   She is coloured with copics and I trimmed her out from the main image and placed her on a nesties Label 14.  I followed Bella's Sunday Sketch at PWCO as I thought it would work perfectly with what I wanted to do on my card.  As seems to be a running theme with my Abigail C. cards I've used lots of bling ... and in this card is my attempt at mimicking the blowing of the dandelion fluff.  An MS border punch and ribbon finish the card off.

Thanks for stopping in again today at my blog.  Don't forget to pop over to PWCO and join in with the Recipe Tuesday fun ... we'd love to see you there!

Take care and stay warm (it's freezing again here today with -24oc temps)!!
