Pastel Christmas

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Hope you are all having a great weekend, it has been a wet and dull one here and then we had a flurry of snow this morning and now we have lovely blue sky so a bit of a mixed bag !

My card I am sharing with you today I made with the latest challenge at Merry Monday in mind, the theme there is 'Make a card with pastel colours' which is something I very rarely do I usually reach for the traditional red and green or if I do use blues, pinks etc I use the brighter shades.

I used a Pachela Studios digi image from Buddly Crafts for my card (it was a freebie ages ago and I didn't save the name :( )

I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out with the largest stitched circle die from my Ebay set, the papers are Pink Petticoat and snippets from my bit box matted onto pale blue card. The snowflakes are cut with Clearly Besotted dies. Sentiment is from a DigiStamp Boutique set.
I used a white gel pen on the hat pompoms.

I really colouring this image in pastel and will definitely be doing it again,

I am entering this card into the following Challenges

Merry Monday #275 - Pastel Colours

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Design Challenge 2018#01 - Winter
Little Miss Muffet Challenge #181 - Anything Goes

In the time it has taken me to write this post our weather has gone from blue sky to black and hailstones lol so looks like a lovely afternoon in my craft room is on the cards :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend whatever the weather where you are,

Hugs Kaz xxx

Hi Kaz, a superb card, love the soft pastels you used with your image, I like to try and do a few challenges that move me beyond my usual style, one it helps use stash up that I rarely touch and two the cards usually end up being favourites. Have a wonderful week... Megan
