Pretty pastels

It's time for a new Cupcake Craftroom challenge and this month the theme is pretty pastels.  And this month the DT are using the new Pretty Pastels collection.  Here is my project using a selection from this very pretty set...



I couldn't resist making mini cards with these sweet papers!  I used the even sweeter Sweet November A Little Bit Of Magic Fairies set along with the matching Sweet November A Little Bit Of Magic Sentiments set.  I used My Favorite Things flourish and rolled flower dies.

You can see more pretty pastel DT inspiration over at the challenge blog here.  You have a whole month to join in so I hope to see your pretty pastel projects too!

Before I go, just to let you know about a new challenge starting today Anything But A Card!  You can check out all the deets here, but in brief the challenges are fortnightly with new challenges starting on the 1st and the 15th of each month.   There are no themes either - so just create ANYTHING BUT A CARD - the only stipulation is that you must also use a stamp (digi, rubber or cling)!  Go check it out!






I am entering my cards into the following challenges:
