Pastel does it

This card is for Corrosive 115 sketch time:
The spotted and striped papers are Craftwork cards vintage rose and the paper used to cut the scalloped nestie circle is K & Co boutique (I've had this for years). I distressed the little circles with tattered rose DI while the die cut was still in the nestie, distressing the edges of the card and the striped squares as well. The butterfly stamp is Stampotique by Janet Klein (stamped with tattered rose DI ink to keep to the pastel look).

I kept the whole card pastel for ECP 38: pretty pastel colours; it's also for Craft your days away 20: white + one, I did it: monochromatic, and Annabelle: say it in monochromatic tones.

The spots and stripes are for Crafty pad 120: spots & dots, Mami doodles 26: spots and/or stripes, Sunday stamper 153: the star spangled banner - stars and/or stripes, and Catch the bug: polka dots and stripes.

The butterfly is for Daring cardmakers: the darling BUGS of May, Totally stampalicious: bugs, Cutie Sunday 140: butterflies, Claudia & company 81: butterflies, Sarah Hurley 40: butterflies/things with wings, Stamp magic 35: butterflies, Whoopsi Daisy: things with wings, Paperminutes 165: wings, and Dutch dare 112: winged things.

It's also for:

Tuesday throwdown 48: use die cuts
Creative craft: distressed
Cute card Thursday 164: it's so distressing
Stamp, scrap, doodle: old supplies (the K & Co boutique paper - at least 8 years old)
Aud sentiments 28: no sentiment
Crafty creations 118: anything goes
Penny's 53: anything goes
Scrappy frogs: anything goes
Sew many challenges 53: anything goes
Stamp something: anything goes
Inspire me Fridays 6: anything goes
