Pastel colours

   It's the third Saturday in the month and that means the start of another challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids. The theme this time is pastel colours, so come on what are you waiting for!
   We have three very generous sponsers for this challenge: Milk Coffee Stamps is giving their winner 3 digis, All Dressed Up  Stamps is giving 2 digis and The Cutting Cafe is giving 3 sets of digis or cutting files.
   Donating your card is not a requirement to enter our challenge, but our kids in the thhirteen hospitals we currently serve would love it if you did!

   My first card uses the digi 'Charlotte and butterfly' from Milk Coffee Stampers. I thought it could make quite a nice mother's day card. I matted designer paper from my horde onto pale lilac mirri card and tied lilac organza ribbon round the lower part of this before matting it onto white card.
   I coloured the digi image using Promarkers and cut it out using a Spellbinders oval die having first cut round that part of the butterfly that fell outside the die and placing it over the cutting edge. I then matted this onto pale lilac mirri card which had been cut using a Spellbinders scalloped oval die. 
   Using a Tattered Lace die I cut two butterflies from the designer paper and attached the thorax to butterfly shaped mirri card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Ribbons - anything with ribbon
   In the Pink - lots of layers
   The Paper Shelter - spring delights
   C.R.A.F.T. - female
   Digi Galore - it's all about her/mother's day
   Butterfly - butterflies and p is for patterned paper
   A Gem of a Challenge - pretty in pink
   Creative Moments - anything goes/special lady or mum
   Through the Purple Haze - for your mum or any other woman in your life

   My second card uses the digi 'Daddy's little helper' from All Dressed Up Stamps and is again coloured using Promarkers. Being a boy's card I didnt' want to make it fussy so I matted and layered the image onto three different coloured core'dinations cardstock and then onto white card. I then attached card candi and two quarter card candis to the corners of the layers.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes
   My Craft Creations - anything goes
   Whoopsi Daisy - add a sentiment
