Pretty Pastels

Summer has really landed where I live and it is hot, hot, hot - with lots of humidity thrown in - so it is now very uncomfortable. I think I want to live in a more moderate climate where the weather stays roughly at 72 all year, where there is no snow, little rain and no humidity. I wonder where that is and if I can convince my husband to move - hmmm.

The challenge this week at Phindy's Place should cool things off a bit. We want you to create a card in PRETTY PASTELS so get out those softly coloured papers and embellishments and let's see what you come up with.

You don't have to use a Phindy image but we do hope you will.  If you do, make sure you enter it twice.  There are lots of fabulous images at Phindy's store that would look wonderful in pastels.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Divas by Design - Pastels
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
KB Cute Monday - Something Cute

Card Stock:  White (Staples)
