The Power of Pastels

 Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ The Power of Pastels, self explanatory use a pastel colour pallet but don't forget to tell us what you used from your stash!!!

I rarely make totally pastel cards unless it is a baby card and even them sometimes I get heavy handed with the markers. Talk about stash.....I was playing around with the floral edge die and had this one left over in my bin, the cardstock was a scrap the patterned paper could be newer or I could be from a pack I bought 5 years ago (I had both on the table) Now the oldest items on the card are the purple pearls which were left over from a DT spot on the Eyelet Outlet. Happy Birthday was cut from a piece of white cardstock that I blended with two shades of distress oxide ink. 

I layered the inked die cut on top of three die cuts from 100 pound cardstock from Michaels, the die cut is easy to glue together because it is nice and chunky. This shows how the sentiment is popped up.

After a 45 minute search for a shoebox full of Birthday sentiments  I finally located them, so many shoeboxes with stamps in them and other stuff too. making labels is going on the To-Do list. The sentiment is from Fran's collection at Stampendous.

Love the softness of your birthday card, the blended greeting, and the pretty floral die. The pearls made a nice accent as well. Thanks for playing along at Seize the Birthday!

This turned out to be a really pretty pastel card! I do like the little punch of colour from the darker pearls. Thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!

That border die is so very pretty, I want to rush out and buy it but I will be restrained! It's beautiful against the pastels and with the bold greeting. x
