I have always loved pastel colours so this week I'm very happy - here is my card, and a few more that I just had to make!
This was the first card I made for this challenge, but had to leave the sentiment off - lack of planning on my part! Inside, I stamped my latest favourite: 'Sending hugs and happy thoughts' from an Altenew stamp set - Beautiful Day. The pastel pink butterflies are cut from paper from the Cocoa Vanilla collection - 'Free Spirit'.
This card is now my favourite and is the one I selected to submit for the challenge. It also has room for a sentiment! The pastel blue butterflies were cut from a watercolour card I had coloured with Distress Inks. The glitter mat and one butterfly are the only accents.
This card is much smaller at 4" x 4" and holds fewer butterflies, but I am often finding I need little note cards like this to send to friends who just need a lift or a 'paper hug'. The card used here is also watercolored with Distress Inks.
The butterfly cover plate die is by Kaisercraft.
