Merry Monday #275 - Pastels

Hello friends.  Welcome back to another Merry Monday challenge, where this week our hostess Susan is asking for Christmas cards done in PASTELS!


I kept with the wreath theme and used a new (to me) stamp from Lil' Inker called Vintage Christmas Wreath.


I started by embossing the image in silver on TH water color cs.  I used my Zigs to add the light pinks, greens, and purples.  I love how this stamp has all the shading built right into the stamp, so it really pretty much colors itself!

I die cut the center of the wreath out with a circle die so the pink would show through and then stamped my sentiment which is also part of the stamp set.  A few sequins and some white baker's twine finished off my card.

Make sure to check out all the inspiration from the rest of the DT using PASTELS, and then play along with us...we'd love to help you get your Christmas cards done in time this year!!  You can find all the information you need to play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
