Cardz 4 Galz: Pretty Pastels

Good morning.  Today's challenge at Cardz 4 Galz is Pretty Pastels - to make a card using pastel colours.  I have kept this card quite simple as I wanted the focus to be on the die cut trellis and flowers.

I die cut the trellis from purple card and stuck it onto a patterned paper background.  Then I die cut the flowers from vellum, coloured them with Promarkers and shaped them using an embossing tool.  I stuck them onto the trellis and added some gems and pearls for centres.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto some coordinating patterned paper and cut it into a tag shape which I layered onto card then punched a hole and added some pink and white baker's twine.  I also added some tiny die cut butterflies and stuck some tiny pearls onto them.

I hope you can join us this week at Cardz 4 Galz.
