Pretty in Pastels
Cathy is the hostess for Mo's Challenge this week, and she's given us another wonderful, fun challenge! Your card or project using one of Mo's images has to be done in pastels and include a hand made flower or flowers of some kind.
Bunches of Love
I love this image, but I say that about all of Mo's images! I don't think I could pick a favorite.
I'm really in the mood for spring! This winter has been awful just about everywhere in the country. I think we're all due for some sunshine and flowers! This challenge came just in time!

Here's another card that follows the challenge criteria. I've used Mo's "Baby Boy" with straight hair. He's also available bald or with curly hair.
I made the flower by basting a 6" length of eyelet trim, gathering it into a circle, and adding a couple of buttons. The tiny button is from an old nightie...I just couldn't throw out those sweet buttons..... how could I?!
