Pastels...

I was inspired by a three challenges to make today's card.....
I wanted to CASe the card at Happy Little Stampers by Kim Heggins
Case the Designer Challenge
I used the inspiration of the die cut rectangle shapes to create something within it.
I used the Memory Box stamp dies as my starting point.
I hadn't used them before and thought they would leave a frame 
so that I could pop the stamps back into them.....
they didn't, they cut them out so that you can use them all individually and no frame.

I masked them all off so that I would keep the white surround at the edge of the stamp
and sponged very lightly with distress inks to keep pastel colours.
The inspiration for the colours have come from Just Us Girls Colour Challenge
of Pink/Yellow/Purple Pastel Colours.
I stamped and heat embossing the flowers, circles and sentiment from HLS 
and water-coloured them lightly.
I finished off by popping the die cut stamps onto Linen Card and added a few sequins.
Pastel Coloured, delicate card for Spring.
