Pastel Colours

Today the card takes inspiration from Mo's Challenge - Pastel Colours and the 2 Sisters Challenge sketch.

Supplies:  White and Pink card, Mo Manning image, Lyra pencils, Grace Taylor design paper, flowers, lace and Kaiser pearls.

A friend visited while I was making this card.  This green is her favourite colour and she liked the image.  So this is for her, just one thing she wanted the sentiment left off until she decided who the intended recipient would be.
