Wee Sweet Blossom

I'm scheduling this post so fingers crossed Mr Blogger isn't having an off day .. .. I've coloured one of Sylvia's older Wee digi designs, this is Sweet Blossom, and she is certainly sweet. I've also taken a deep breath and cut up some of my pretty Stampin' Up! paper and used Soft Suede to mat it and diecut the scallop circle mat for my image. As the paper has a white core and I didn't want it showing I've inked the edges with brown chalk inks, and inked the edge of the image after I'd finished colouring. It's a simple little card and my embellishments are the pastel amber pearls made with my pearl maker pen, a scattering of punched flowers, a circular embellishment from the Sweet Summer Sentiments and a bow tied with SU! Crumb Cake seam binding.

To keep with the softer vintage feel I've coloured with softer shades. Skin tones are my usual E000, 00 and E21 with her hair and cute companion in E50, 51, 53 and 55. I've used E81 and E31 for her creamy clothing and YG91 and Y28 for the soft green stripes on her tights. For the pink flowers and butterflies I used R81, 83 and 85 with G40 and G85 for the leaves.

I'm not sure if my card fits with any current challenges .. .. perhaps you would let me know and I'll link up later this evening.

I found the Allsorts challenge which is a fee and easy one again this week - so in with them! And the Totally Gorjuss challenge is to use a punch or die - I have die cut my image and mat with Nesties and punched out all the little flowers, so in with them too!
