IALT12 - Birthday Wishes


I've been having fun on my 'rainbow run' over the last week or so - lots of vibrant, energetic, colourful cards. But it's fun to try something different, too! This card was inspired by the current Inspired by All the Little Things challenge:




I knew I would be using pale colours to try and capture the dreamy feel of the inspiration, so to soften the look further, I stamped everything in grey.

I used:
-Waffleflower Lotus
- WPlus9 That is All

I often use gray with pastel colors and it looks fabulous with your soft lavender lotus blossoms.

Happy Dance said...

I agree with Tracey; this is most definitely soft and dreamy. The lotus flowers are beautifully colored, and I adore the gray base and sentiment. Stunning card, my friend. Just love it! Bev
