Pastel Happy Easter Card

Hello and happy Friday! Today is the last day to enter the current Inky Paws color challenge, so I figured I better get my card done. I struggle with pastel colors and had attempted making a card several times and just stopped. Time is also running out to make Easter cards and that prompted me to make this Pastel Happy Easter Card. I played around with my patterned papers, after making my selections I stamped and colored the image. The image is called Spring Pile Up by Newton's Nook and it was colored with Copic markers, which is my favorite coloring medium. The blue used is called Baby Blue by Copic marker and it varies from the color in the challenge photo, but I figured baby blue of all shades would work. After coloring the coordinating dies were used to cut out the image and the Happy Easter sentiment. You can't tell from the photo, but I added sugar cube glitter paint by Martha Stewart Crafts to the sentiment for some sparkle. Then I decided to color and die cut some flowers and leaves from the Deer Friend stamp set by Newton's Nook. Finally I had a finished pastel colored card. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!
