Oh what a week. Between a pinched nerve and a stomach bug I have not been up to snuff at all. Hope all of you are in much better shape.
Our sweet Franz is bringing us a theme of "Pastels" for the new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. I have to admit at first I wasn't concerned, but as I tried to put the card together I began to panic. Nothing seemed to work. The only thing I liked was the colored baby image. There are three layers of paper piecing on that umbrella cause I kept changing my mind. LOL I finally just grabbed several My Mind's Eye papers in soft pinks and here we are. I cut a length of pink tulle and sewed it through the center for gathering to add on top of the Prima flower. I know it's rather CAS, but honestly I have not been in a very crafty mood and all the bells and whistles ideas just didn't come into play.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Moving Along with the Times--baby
Crafty Creations--pink plus one color
Simon Says Stamp--anything goes
Make It Monday--anything goes
I Heart Sketches--sketch
Great Impressions--pastels and/or polka dots
No Matter Which--color palette
Hope you all got a chance to do the blog hop and check out all the great inspiration with the new spring stamps. Grab a Mo image and some pastel colors and come play along for your chance to win a $5.00 gift voucher from Mo's store in this new challenge.
