Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge - Pastels

The challenge on Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog this week is hosted by Peggy Marsh, our DT coordinator extraordinare!!!  For the challenge this week Peggy chose the theme of creating a pastel card.
Here is what I created :
This sweet image is called First Day of School-Girl and I love it.  I loved coloring this with my copics and really liked the way that it turned out.
I used my last piece of BoBunny dp I bought at my LSS as the under layer of dp because it just highlighted the colors that I had used to color the image. 
The main image borders were sponged with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink. 
The flowers were layered onto a MS medallion punched circle and the petals of the 5 petal flowers were shaped around a paint brush handle to add dimension.  A blue Dew Drop was added to the center of each flower to maintain the color scheme.
The heart lace was added to the bottom to continue with the soft vintage feel I was going for on this project.
I thought the sentiment was perfect for this card and I like to stamp directly onto my main image which I feel doesn't distract from the image as much as a separate layer or tag for the sentiment, JMO :)

Be sure that you check out the rest of the DT creations, you know they will be awesome.  We can't wait to see what you create.
