Not quite 100% pastel

I love house mouse even though I don't have many but I try to think outside the box when entering their challenges with the few I have. This time was easier as it was pastels though I did deviate with my ribbon as I don't have any pastel ribbons and I wanted something a little different so hope they don't mind too much.



I coloured the image with promarkers choosing pastel shades in hindsight I perhaps should have used a paler ink than black as I think the outline is a little harsh.

The paper I used for the base is pastels and I distressed the edges. The ribbon i just thought added that little pop and apologies as I don't have any patterned pastel ribbon. The flowers are from my stash and the centres are new , I saw them on amazon and thought they made perfect flower centres even though they are classed as flowers in their description.


I didn't add a sentiment but thought when I do it would look perfect on a tag dropping below the flowers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-



Addicted to stamps-any shaped card and a stamp


cards und more- use ribbon

fab n funky - spots and stripes

In the pink -spring flowers

creative knockouts - spring is on its way
