Take Joy

A Day for Daisies is having a new Release of "The Tiny Ones" and a challenge called "Pastels, No pink". Pretty self explanitory I'd say. You must use a Day for Daisies image, but if you need an image, Tammy has very kindly offered an image for you to use. And it is just too cute! You can find the image and all the rules for the challenge here.
So for my card I decided to use Tammy's free image because it is just so blooming cute.

I found the idea for the fold on my wonderful friend Karen's blog...if you'd like to check it and her blog out, you can find them here. You'll have to scroll down to the heading "A new fold I tried".

The colors that I decided to go with were blue, lilac and lavender. I added blue stickles to my butterfly's and star dust stickles to my lavender roses. I also added little touches of rhinestones to my large lilac butterfly on the top left corner and the small lilac butterfly on the pearls coming up from my roses.

Here's a little closer look at that wonderful little image. Isn't it just adorable?

I added blue stickles to my small butterfly's by the sentiment. The sentiment is from Wink Wink Ink.
