How excited am I to be posting my very first card as a design team member for
I am so lucky to be playing along with such talented and sweet ladies…
This week’s challenge is PASTELS!
 Here is my dt card for this challenge:


     For this 6×6 card, I selected the new Elizabeth Bell for Whimsy rubber stamp called, “Sun Kissed“.  Isn’t she the cutest? She is colored with pastel copics and Spica Pens on Cryogen White Iridescent paper. DP is Kaisercraft English Rose. Cardstock Bazill & DCWV. Flowers and metal corner embellishment (embossed with white opaque embossing powder) from Wild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment from Stampin Up.  Border punch EK Success and butterflies Martha Stewart punch. I loved how Bev Rochester (All the Things I Love blog) applied tiny pearls around her image here, but instead of real pearls, I used the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ivory.  It adds such a nice touch to images!
     I hope I’ve inspired you to head over to the Stamptacular Sundays Challenge blog and see what the rest of the dt team has created with pastels! Our sponsor this week is WHOOPSI DAISY STAMPS– the winner will receive his/her choice of FOUR SHEETS of digi stamps! Get out your stamps and pastels and play along!  Have a great day, and thank your for your kind comments.
