Pretty Pastels

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “Pastel Party”.  The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. The prize to win for this challenge is a beautiful flower die and absolutely gorgeous!

I was inspired by the beautiful colors in the photo. I use a Couture Creations Intricutz die “French Bicycle” as focal point on my card. I created a  background for the bicycle with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powder. I love the shimmer of these powders. On the photo it looks much brighter than in real life! The fun part for me is always to arrange the flowers and I really like the shabby outcome of this card. I finished off with a sentiment die cut from Impression Obsession, a little bit of glitter, bows and a few gem stones on the sentiment.

Challenges I entered:

A close-up of the bicycle and background

The sentiment embellished with gem stones

The flowers and trellis

A peep at the inside

    Wonderful background for the bike. Love how you grounded it with the flower trellis and added some flowers in the basket. Great design.
