Soft Pastels

I fooled around with this card and tried to just do a small portion of my Marianne Design Die Cut on the edge only of this card. Not the whole die cut on the front.  Not so sure... it's as nice as I had hoped for but decided to post it anyways.  I decide to use this card for a challenge at Stampin Sisters In Christ Challenge #136.  I love the soft pastels together on this card and the challenge was about pastel colors.  So what could be better?


With this card I used two different stamps sets.  One was a Stampin"-Up stamp set and I do not know the name of the set?  I borrowed the set from my daughter and have given it back to her so I can't check for you.  Sorry...     

However, the other stamp is a Penny Black stamp.  I combined the two stamps to give it a added look of several flowers for the front rather than just one big daisy. I love the large daisey stamp, don't you? 

As I've mentioned before I usually always put a computer generated verse into the inside of each of my cards to give it a more personal touch rather than just handwriting a simple Happy Birthday in my own handwriting inside.  For this card I chose a pretty Birthday verse I liked and used my Marianne Creatable Die Cut and then popped up the verse for the inside of the card.

Wish me luck with challenge and
may you all enjoy your week?
