Colour Create Pastel Challenge

Welcome to another Colour Create Challenge! Our Challenge this fortnight is to use some beautiful pastel shades Lemon, Lilac and Mint - with the optional extra being a doily. This challenge was set by our extremely talented DT Dena who has chosen the most gorgeous picture to inspire you.

Isn't this the most devine Baby Nursery!

Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe who are currently having a Huge Summer Sale so make sure you stop by and check out the bargains!

Now IRL I was just soooo pleased with the card as these pastel colours look great together! However when it came time for me to photograph the card the colours aren't true to life at all!

My base card is a very soft mint and I've used this same colour for the petal nestabilities shape. The smaller square is lemon but in the pic they all look the same :(  and my Lilac looks greyish too! But enough complaining! I've dyed my white ribbon with Barely Banana Ink to be a pale lemon shade, added lemon pearls and the flowers are a mixture of Wild Orchid and Spotlight blooms. My sewing is actually in a pale green cotton too.

I'm going to enter my card in the following challenges
