Whimsical Designs "Pastels" Challenge


It's Wednesday and we're back with a new challenge over at Whimsical Designs!

This week the challenge is "Pastels" and we have a photo for you to use as inspiration.


Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place and you have a chance to win 3 digi's of your choice from her store!!!!



For my project I created a card using a cut file from Silhouette Studio for this woven basket card. I used papers from We R Memory Keepers and Three Bugs In A Rug. My sentiment is from Stephanie's Whimsical Fun Vol 1 which you can purchase here. I added a little Easter grass for fun :).




Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned papers - Wild Flowers, Thicket and Sweet Spot from Cotton Tail by We R Memory Keepers and Chicks Rock from Little Chick by Three Bugs In A Rug; Silhouette Studio cut file; stamp - Whimsical Fun Vol 1; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; Easter grass; twine - Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Now head on over to Whimsical Designs and see all the beautiful "pastel" creations the design team has come up with for your inspiration. 

Hope to see your project linked up with us!!!!
