Pastels

Challenge time again over at MAWTT, and today Hazel has chosen

Pastels

as the theme.  Now for some strange reason I keep thinking of fruit pastels, but I've a feeling that may not be the path she wants us to follow!!!

Instead I'm thinking pale colours, so it's an ivory lily I share with you today set on lovely Bo Bunny - Primrose Collection papers.  Nothing too fancy about todays card - but that's kinda how I like them!  Oh, and did I mention my new stitched dies from the fab Simon Says Stamp - Got them at Christmas (Thanks Mam & Dad x) - love them already and this is their first use!

Sorry about photo - Winter light is****e!
