Less is More Challenge...

I'm loving this challenge although I do find it hard not to put more on the cards.....
Pastel Colours is our challenge this week from Less is More.
Stampin Up 'Live your Dream' is where this lovely image came from.  The image I've coloured direct to stamp with pens.  I've used S.U. pretty in pink and certainly celery colours.  Backing paer is also S.U. and you will have noticed by now that I DID sneek in a couple of pearls for the centre of the flowers!  Ribbon is also certainly celery.
