I discovered this lovely blog, A Day For Daisies. They have the most adorable, whimsical digital stamps.   I decided to enter their weekly Challenge #21.  You must use one of their stamps, and they have provided the sweetest freebie to use for this challenge.  I love it!  The challenge is to use pastels, but NO pink.  I kept my card as pastel as I could, and her little face is colored in light peach, NOT pink.  The clouds are stamped in milled lavender, NOT pink!

I used the current Card Patterns Sketch #121, and will also enter my card in their challenge.  I think this sketch is so interesting:

Here is my card......

I must say this is one of my all time favorite cards I have made.  It came together so easily, and I love the outcome!

Paper:  Hot Off The Press and Anna Griffin
Ink:  Tim Holtz, Milled Lavender and Versafine, Onyx Black   
Stamps:  A Day For Daises and Hero Arts
Dies:  Sizzix and Nestabilities
Other:  Papertrey ribbon, Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol and Hero Arts pearls
