Pretty Flowers in Pastels

For Stamp TV's color challenge, Carla challenged us to use any pastels. I made this card using pastels and a sketch from Midnight Madness. I used innocent pink as the base card and as scalloped mat for the image. I layered with a pattern paper of soft pastels and a glitter striped paper of blue. To show more of the floral print and still follow the sketch, I used a vellum paper framed with blue in the lower right corner of the card. Stamped the image of flowers with pastels on an ivory oval cut with Nesties. Colored with pastel pencils. Added some ivory ribbon along the diagonal
