My DT card for our new challenge over at Forever Friends

Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Forever Friends challenge blog

Our theme for this week is 

Pastel Colours

We are sponsored by 

so head on over to the challenge blog HERE to join in and to see what the rest of the team have made 

Here are the details for my pastel card

The image I have used is by Whoopsi Daisy from sheet 370 and its been coloured with Copics

The pretty lavendar card I have used is from a Pink Petticoat download, I think it was called lots of dots which I cut and scored to make a 3 step stepper card

The image has been mat and layered onto the pretty decorative oval lilac die cut and then stuck on to the 2nd step before I covered the whole card with acetate

The 2 diecuts at the side of the acetate have been cut using a Joy Craft die and then I added a flower and piece of card candi in the centre before sticking on to the acetate

To finish the card off I have used some lovely self adhesive pearl swirls to the top and bottom and 3 lilac pearls on both sides of the image

I am quite pleased with the result
