Pastel Flowers and a Butterfly!

Inspried by pretty pastels and on a roll with using reinkers and rubbing alcohol, see my last 3 or 4 posts I've probably made this card a LOT busier than I normally do but well there was all these layers in the sketch and then flowers and well I HAD to add bling......LOL

The colours I've used here are Lovely Lilac (retired), Sage Shadow (retired), Marina Mist and a touch of whisper white in the sentiment and ribbon.  Then I went to my stash of flowers and just added some to pick up on the colours used. 

To finish it off I added some flowers stamped in silver, but I think that was a mistake! oh well, see Andrea......I do make them, I just don't usually post them.

I'm going out with a bang with 5 challenges in this one post as this will be my last post for a little while, I'm moving house so I won't have time to craft, plus I need to have the internet transfered and all that jazz.  Mind you though, if the packing is driving me crazy and I haven't gotten to the craft room then I might just have to make another card.....somehow I doubt it though....*sigh*

This creation qualifies for the following challenges.  

Friday Sketchers ~ Sketch # 147

Paper Pals Arts ~ # 86 Elements of Style - Embossing

Colour Create ~ Pastel Colours
