Pile it On Challenge # 10 Pastels

Hope you've all had a good weekend,

I spent yesterday with my lovely sister, we started making some small Easter gifts for my grandaughter to give out at the mums and tots group that I take her to. I'ts her birthday on the 26th and she's leaving to start nursery after the Easter break. I'll show them when they are finished!!

This is my card for the following challenges:
Pile it On - the theme is Pastels and to get your creation on to at least one other challenge.
Magnolia  Down Under - It's their 1st birthday day,   "Happy Birthday!" so you can guess the theme. They have a brilliant blog hop to follow with candy along the way!!!  My card has a Magnolia background.
Crafty Creations - to make your own flowers
My Time To Craft - Kidz Cards
Ooh la la Creations chall 49 - anything goes

I loved making the tent card so much I thought I would use it for this children's birthday card and have the teddies hanging in the window, there's a fabulous tutorial here
The apperture was cut with Nestabilities rectangle plain and scallop.
I used Magnolia summer background and coloured it with Copic markers.
The  gorgeous teddies stamp is by Elzybells and the designer paper is by Kay & Co
Sentiment, oval punch and scallop oval by Stamping Up
I punched the flowers from more of the paper and joined the card at the top with brads. I covered the back with the designer paper to cover the brads.

 Thanks so much for stopping by,
Love Cherie   //*.*\\
