WOC *Pastels*.....

Good Morning!
I hope you all had a fabulous week-end!
They just go by too fast though don't they??

Anyways today is the start of another challenge over
The challenge is to use Pastels!!
I must admit I found it hard!! LOL
Once I decided to start fall it was hard
to go back to lighter colors!!  I dug out
some of my favorite Fancy Pants papers and went
from there.  I also had this image stamped
but never colored so I used that up as well!

Of course I had to use some crackle distress paint in Picket Fence.
I had some perfect pastel flowers from WOC to match the papers.
These are some of the Cherry blossoms and a large rose.
(BTW ~ they are having a sale on some flowers)

I also wanted to give a close up of the gorgeous lace. It is
such a nice width too! It is perfect alone or for the
layering that I like. The intricate detail still shows through
the bottom when I layer it!! I think it is so pretty!

That sentiment is from Stamping Bella. I have had it for years
and I think it fits alot of the Belles and Whistles Spring
images that have cleaning themes.

Well that is it for today, I hope you all have a
fabulous start to your week and I hope to see
your fabulous creations with your pastels!!
Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!
