Pretty Pastels

Gosh, this post almost went live with just a card and zip else!  Must attend to that now.

Morning all and welcome to this weeks challenge over at Moving Along with the Times.  Today Kelly has chosen

Pretty Pastels

as our theme - a theme that wasn't too well received by some of our design team - but we all got there in the end and if you pop over to the main MAWTT page I'm sure you'll agree the selection of cards is delightful.

For my card, I went with a super Art Impressions stamp called Girlfriends - Uptown Girls - I think these ladies are perhaps the Mums/Aunties of the Stamping Bella Uptown Girls - what do you think???

So the pastel Promarkers made their mark on this onw and because the stamp is so large, there wasn't much room for anything else apart from an MS doily trim and a couple of buttons. Papers a 12x12 Craft Creations sheet.
