Pastels in Bloom...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. This week we are working in pastel...

From soft shabby chic colors to white washing with gesso, being inspired by Easter to using actual pastels, this week we challenge you to be inspired by the softer side of the color wheel…

In addition to the lovely pastels of spring, I love the fresh foliage popping up in the garden. So... I took that inspiration and crafted up some lovely little patterned petals...
In pastels, of course!
Then, a bit of messy stitching, some black for contrast, and a bit of watercolor....
And there we have it... a lovely little spring card!
And now it's your turn!
Go get crafty and and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from
