Deja vu - oh no!!

Good morning blogworld,

What an odd title, eh!  Reason being I've avoided colouring pastel tones for ages and now I've made two cards in two weeks that are pastels!  Do you think someone is trying to tell me to try harder, think outside the box, push the envelope, stretch myself - and so on, and so on??  Or maybe it's just a coincidence!

Which ever, it's Tuesday so that means it's a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly and, surprise, surprise - the challenge this week is Pretty Pastels!  There is a fab prize, as ever, and fabulous DT inspiration, as ever.

So this is my attempt (part deux) at pastel:

I used:

Digi image:
All Dressed Up - My best friend
hair and skin: Copics; 
clothes puppy, shadow: Prismacolour pencils

Die-namics - Blueprints 1

My Mind's Eye - The sweetest thing: Lavender

Anything else?
Craftwork cards - sentiment

Again that's all folks - I'm away to lie down in a darkened room and get over my exercise class, my goodness my legs hurt!!!

See y'all soon,

What a great job you are making of the pastels, someone has to!! I avoid pastel at all costs but love looking at others' makes. Such a gorgeous image, I really need it but have banned myself from indulging as I have tons of unused digis and rubber :0(
