I'm so glad I took the time to play today. Feels so relaxing to play with paper. The flower was coloured with chalk pastels. Love the soft effect. Makes a nice change from copies. This was the first time I've tried using pastels on a card. Took two tries. The ink smeered the first time I sprayed it with the sealant. Grr.
The inside says "Don't cry because it is over, Smile because it happened." Dr. Suess Both sentiments are from Paper Makeup. The flower is from Mark's Finest Papers.
Challenges this card meets:
Marks Finest Papers - Use chalks
Speedy TV - Paper Piecing - Hard to see but it was done around the edges of the white circle.
