Pastels Challenge at Dies R Us

Hello and 'happy' March first!!
I just love that March is here already bringing us much closer
to the time change of 'spring forward'
and much closer to Spring itself!

Our new challenge theme at Dies R Us Challenge blog is

Well, I sure have a nice 'spring' pastel card to share with you today using all
the dies I have listed below!!

Impression Obsession Love Birds
Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily

I used a gorgeous background paper from LemonCraft.
I won this pretty paper pack 'Tiny Miracles' about a year ago
and have been hoarding it for awhile...
it was time to pull it out and use it, 
in fact ALL the die cuts are from this pad.

You can see I started with the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily
and built on top of that.
First with Poppystamps Sylvan Sprig
then Sue Wilson Finishing Touches  Petite Vinery
and I added Impression Obsession Love Birds
then tucked in Impression Obsession Birdhouse Set

I finished my card by cutting twice and stacking
Tutti Designs Word Set Hello
I added one little flower!

Now make sure and 'pop' on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog 
and see all the pretty 'PASTELS' the design team has
just to brighten your day!!

Wow, is this ever pretty! You make me want to go and create a fluffy spring card. I even have three of these dies. Love the pretty paper. It's definitely hoard-worthy. Even with all the pretty dies this is still a very easy to mail card. My favorite kind!

THis beautiful card done in pastels reminds me so much of spring - unless I look out the window at the raging blizzard going on at the moment :) The colors are delightful and I love the little birdhouse too!
