Papertake Weekly Challenge

Yes I'm back with a challenge card....yes just the one....the other....well that's a bit of a saga.....
The challenge this week on Papertake Weekly is

I love soft pastel colours and don't know why.....but haven't made a pastely card for absolutely ages....
so just had to have a go at this challenge

Papers and Flowers
Pink Petticoat
Little Fleurs Collection
Flourish Stamp: Craftwork Cards....Choko Collection
Dewdrops..Papermania Glitter Gems
and my other challenge card.....well don't ya know....just when everything is going to plan......a card for 2Sketches4You....a challenge I have sadly been neglecting lately....determined to get it done this I worked on late last night.......done and dusted.....and off to bed a happy bunny.   BUT... what a difference a day makes... absolute flippin disaster this morning....spilt a whole cup of coffee over the card  when I was moving stuff around to get ready for taking pics....oh I could have cried.....but you know what they say...."no point in crying over spilt milk" and not one to dwell on the bad things....hey ho....."every cloud has a silver lining" could have been worse....I could now have a very soggy and sticky do I have time to start all over again or will it be another missed week....we will have to wait and see....need to get "The Cubbyhole" all spruced up for my special visitor....especially after my coffee disaster....sticky sticky everywhere.....and believe me...she won't be able to get in the door for all the mess.....the bin is overflowing and those darned little bits from the 3D foam pads are everywhere.....THE NOT SO FUN...part of being a crafter.....catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxx
P.S. To answer Paula's question....the flowers are printed off on a sheet and I believe there are punches available but I just cut them out leaving a white border.
