Pastel Peek-a-Boo...

Pastels...Mmmmm...Love them!  This week's Tune In Tuesday is hosted by Rita Kegg and it's sure to bring a TON of entries.  Have you checked out her post on the Savvy Projects Blog yet?  If not, you'll want to hop over there and check out what she has to share.  I'm joining the fun since I LOVE LOVE LOVE girly pastels!!!  I added a little bit of patterned paper (Toodle Loo V834) in bolder colors to really set off the pastels in the image and in the background paper. 

It's quite a simple layout really.  I wanted the focus to be on the cutie patootie so I kept everything else pretty plain.  I embossed the bazzill cardstock (Shore) with the Impressabilities die (Floral and Stone K310) to give the card more texture.  I stamped the elegant frame (Fabulous Frames T-3255) with Versafine Onyx and then embossed with Stampabilities holographic embossing powder.  After stamping and coloring the frame with my Copic markers (see colors below), I stamped the cutie (Delightfully Spooky T3348) separately on a piece of white cardstock. Then I cut her out into a square that would fit the size of the "frame".   Threading the frame with some ribbon and scrappers floss -and popping it up on the page finished it off. 

Oh- if you notice anything different about the little angel...I gave her a little mouth, some freckles, and a little bit more hair with my Micron pen.
