A new challenge at Craft Your Passion brings sad news!!

Hello and welcome to challenge 148 at Craft Your Passion!!  Before I share my card with you, it is with a heavy heart that I bring you some sad news!! We were to be sponsored by The Digi Garden this week but we were informed late last week that the owner Jacqui McNeil passed away suddenly!! So I wish to send my deepest sympathy to her family and friends. May the memories of the times you had with her help you through this sad time!!! (Jenn (CYP blog owner) will still honour the prize from the Digi Garden and give the winner the digi images the DT got to create with).
         So this weeks challenge is Pastels!! We don't want to see bright or dark colours just Pastel colours in your creations!!  I used Molly Heart Peeker from the Digi Garden and I just loved creating this card!!
I coloured Molly Heart peeker in with tria markers and added kindy glitz to the hearts.  I printed out the image twice and stuck the hearts on foam tape for a bit of dimension!! The papers I used are from my scrap stash. I recently won the floral vine die and wanted to use it  and I think it perfectly with the layout of my card!The ribbon was from another blog candy win, then I added the flowers and buttons and the heart charm. To finish it off  I added some rhinestones mainly cos I hadn't used any...LOL! I probably could have left them off but hey they look ok!!
That's it from me but I'll be back with another post very shortly!!!


  1. Hey gal! Lots of things to look at in your latest creation... I really like the die cut branches and the charm you added for embellishments. And I especially like the super cute image you chose and putting her in the round window! Well done Alethea!

  2. Such cute pastel colors you used on her. I loved the button additions and the charm! I am so happy to be on the CYP DT with you.

  3. Wow this is such a cute card. I like the floralswirl you used and the buttons.

  4. Cute card! That little heart charm is my favorite!

  5. Wonderful interpretation of the pastel challenge. I like how you made the hearts 3-D. That adds such dimension to this sweet image. The buttons are a pretty detail, repeating the circle of the image. Love it!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!! It's made my day!!
