WOC #8 - Pastels

Happy Monday!  I hope you all have a wonderful week!  Today it's Wild Orchid Craft Challenge day!  Our challenge this week is to use pastels!  This really was a challenge for me, as I don't think I know how to color "light" with!  My coloring usually is bold colors, but I did have fun and my Copic Blender Pen sure got a work out! 
When I sat down to make this card I saw the little bird cage sitting on my desk and thought how lovely it would look decorated with some WOC flowers, and that was when I remembered my New Home by Victoria Case for SCACD stamp that had a cute birdie and birdhouse and the gift set just came together!  Gotta love when that happens!
I've used Memory Box Gossamer papers, I so loved how the one piece has the beautiful tree on it, which went with my whole theme so well.  Swirls are made using my Magnolia Doohicky Die and then I added 3mm pearls to accent them.  The Guipure lace is from the fabulous WOC!
This beauty has been colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen.  I used the technique where I took my blender pen and picked up color from my G40 Copic to make the lightest green color.  I've also used my Sakura star dust pen to accent the swirls on her dress.  The sky has been airbrushed with my ABS!  And then this cutie was popped up on a SB beaded oval!
Flowers are from the fabulous WOC, I so love the variety of colors that Wild Orchid has!  Flower arrangement consists of 25mm Wild Roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 8mm semi-opened roses, 4mm closed rosebuds, and Gypsophilas.  Flowers have been accented with 3mm pearls.
The cage has been accented with 20mm roses and then I added two types of ribbon for the bow on top.
The inside has 12 blank mini note cards and envelopes.  I hope you've enjoyed this fun project!  Now head over to the WOC Challenge blog to see the other fantastic creations that the DT have cooked up!
