Sorry I've not been around for the last few days - I got a tummy bug and didn't feel up to blogging or making cards at all. I'm ok now though :o) Today's card is for our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge, which is 'perfect pastels'.
I had to keep my card quite simple - the main light bulb in my craft room went, and we didn't have another one that would fit (it's got a dimmer from its nursery days, and energy saving bulbs flash and flicker), so I only had the light from the daylight lamp. Didn't want to try and make anything too complicated in a dark room lol! I'm not even convinced that my card turned out all that 'pastel' really... so I'll just be in the naughty corner if you need me!
I've used one of the cute new sheep images that Janet recently released. This one is Happy Birthday to Ewe and it comes with the matching sentiment. I've cut it out using a nestie Labels 22 die, and have actually managed to get the balloon slightly out of the nestie - probably only the second time I've managed this and not had to throw the image away and start again. The image was printed onto linen card and coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. The papers are Pink Petticoat (gingham) and Pink Gem's Christmas Sparkles, and I inked everything with London Fog memento ink. The little grey buttons are Papermania.
