Card Crafter's Circle/Challenge #18 GENTLE /PASTEL COLOURS

Hello, and welcome!

I'm soooo glad it's the weekend......pheeeewww.......been a bit of a hectic week!

I'm doubly pleased because it's time for another challenge at 
and this week we have a lovely theme for you.........
Gentle and/or Pastel Colours

One of our favourite sponsors is 

Our randomly drawn challenge winner will receive the 4 Sponsor images the Design Team has created with - coloured and uncoloured! What a fabulous prize!

I decided to make a little wall hanging, just for a change, and I used this very pretty wreath image..........

I put the digi image into my graphics programme, then added the sentiment, and grouped them together so they would print as one image.........I then coloured up with Promarkers, and used a little chalk ink around the sentiment.......

The lovely sentiment is from TLC, and I'm giving the wreath to one of my girls, so I thought it was very fitting..........

I added a tiny pearl to each flower, just to give a bit of texture, added a length of pink gingham ribbon for hanging, and called it done!

You really need to take a look at what the rest of the Design Team came up with (links in the sidebar).....Bonnie used the same image as I did, but our creations are really different....that's what I call a versatile image.....haaaa!

Hope you'll play along with us, this know how nosey I am, so show us what you can do!
