I'll Never Desert You

Hi Crafty Friends,
I am dropping in to share a card outside of my comfort zone. I usually color cutesy images and use BRIGHT colors. However, I was inspired by all the spring colors that are popping up on blogs and instagram and decided to give it a try. Sugar Pea Designs has a great Mix It Up Challenge and this month it features some of those pastels. I used both the sketch and the image to create this beauty.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite Pastel Color?
A: Me? I really like Lavendar

I used Altenew Soft Pastel 6 Mini Ink Pack to stamp the cactus in all the different colors. I then took copic markers to shade them and fussy cut them out. I created a little layered scene of cactus on the Kat Scrappiness Stitched Circle Dies and added a few as accents in the corners. I finished with the sentiment stamped on banner dies.
