Pastel Birthday card

Hello there! I really like this sketch that came across from My Favorite Things the other day and decided to pair it with a few pastel challenge that are also going on.

The rose stamp and die are from My Favorite Things and stamped in pastel colors. I used black cardstock to cut the outline of the rose out.

Sentiment is from Altenew. The wedding white sequins are from Simon Says Stamp. The pierced banner die that I used to cut the wisteria cardstock is from Avery Elle.

I tired to keep this as clean and simple as I could with as much white space as possible to enter into the pastel challenge over at Less Is More. Hopefully, I succeeded.

So soft and pretty Laurie! I can't seem to manage pastel, I start off OK, with soft inks and somehow, without any effort on my part, they turn into bold colours? I can't work out why! You have managed it beautifully here! Have a lovely week! Hazel xx
