Great Impressions- Pastels and Polka Dots

Pastels and Polka Dots

Our April Monthly Challenge at Great Impressions is to use either Pastels and/or Polka Dots.

Looks like I really got into this challenge LOL! Lots of pretty pastels and lots of "polky" dots!

I colored Daisy Mae and left the edges  with some white showing . I then cut lots of pretty pastel mats out of Bo Bunny polka dot paper. I added the sentiment on a layered banner along with a couple crystals, and tucked in a few clouds.  Very Springy indeed!

I hope you can take a few minutes and check out the Great Impressions Stamps Blog and join our challenge-you could be a winner!

See you next week!
