Soooo I am not really a pastel person ... I don't pick them out naturally and even for a baby card it's tough for me to be creative for some reason. So of course I wanted to challenge myself to try to use some pastel bits I had hanging around to make a nice little girls card. It turned out nice, I would definitely give it to someone (If I could think of someone I knew having a girl right now) but it's not me, it's not my colours and I know it.
SO I was sitting there looking at it and thinking "it's just fine Laurie, move on ..." when it came to me. I have friends that have been trying to adopt for years! So I thought what kind of card would I make for them. I scrounged through my paper, and little odds and ends and came up with this colour palette and the idea of a card that would be perfect for adoptive parents. "A Wish Came True" ... I wanted it to be very fairy tale/gypsy feeling and cheerful and I think it does those things! I used stamps to create pa terned card stock (The green, not the main pattern! :) ) and my cricut was a bit of help. I am really pleased overall.
This card fits a couple of challenges:
