Fussy and Fancy Challenge 160 - Pastel Colours

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

********
Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and super talented

Pat K

Good day everyone,
Pat K here to welcome you to a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday
It’s my turn to host and I’ve chosen the theme “Pastel Colours” .
I would describe my style as very eclectic.  I usually throw everything I have onto a card but there are times when the image yells out to me to be left alone resulting in a CAS design.   I love pastels but don’t shy away from stark contrasts in colour either.  I challenge myself by trying new techniques, not always mastering any of them but it’s fun to experiment.  I hope you enjoy the challenge and get a chance to play along with us. xx

Pat has chosen... 
Pastel Colours
as her theme for our new challenge!!  


Here is the beautiful
Pastel colours card that Pat has created
to share with all of us!

(Using pre-coloured image I Love You, Baby from The Paper Shelter
Pat, your card is absolutely stunning! 
What an adorable and fun
image and your colouring and attention to detail is beautiful! 
Speaking of beautiful, just look at those lovely die cuts!
I love the water like swirls and the pretty coral like leaves
you used with the delicate flowers!
I can't stop looking at your fairies gorgeous hair! 
 I love the colour!

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy Followers!
********


Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
super talented Annie!

Annie

Hi!  It's Annie here and I am so pleased to be hosting the Challenge for the next two weeks. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, I love trying new things.  I'm not an expert at anything but I do really enjoy trying new techniques out.
As spring is just around the corner here in the UK, that means all the Birds, Bees ,Butterflies and dragonflies will be fluttering about!  So I have chosen, "Things with Wings" for my Challenge. So lets use all these little winged creatures on our cards, tags and Home D├ęcor pieces, or you might even like to use some mystical fantasy winged creatures like Dragons or even beautiful Angels. The choice is yours, as long as you put at least one Thing with Wings on your project, I will be very happy.
I am excited and I'm looking forward to seeing your entries and visiting your blogs, so go on and have fun with this challenge! 
Our sponsor this time is Sweet Lilac Flowers so maybe you could add some of their beautiful embellishments too, Hope you enjoy this Challenge!

X  Annie


Annie



Wow!  Annie, your card is absolutely STUNNING!
What a brilliant fold and design!
Just look at all of those gorgeous butterflies
flying and floating through the air!
I love the colour combination of aqua blue with black!
Then stamping the silver embossed, "Happy Birthday"
sentiment adds the perfect elegant touch!
What wonderful inspiration for your challenge!
Simply GORGEOUS, Annie!
