Clearly Inspired ... in Pastels

I do love those Clearly Inspired Challenges .... don't you?? I mean, great inspiration AND the chance to win?? :) Awesome. Love it.

So, today our challenge is to use pastels. There was a time when that's pretty much all I used. It was what I was comfortable with, and I seldom reached beyond my comfort zone at that point. Now, though, I really had to stretch to go toward the pastel palette.

Here's my take on the challenge.

I used the Cricut and SCAL to cut the flourish circle frame and cut a white circle to go behind it.

card recipe -
Stamps - Scripture Children, Luke 12:34 (new for January!)
Paper - dp, budding lilac, white
Ink - black, amethyst
Accessories - scal, cricut, ribbon, lace, flowers, pearls, pop dots

Let's see what you can do!! Head over to Clearly iStamp and get the details of the challenge. Join in, and you could win!

Have a fantastic Friday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
