Flamingo Fabulous and Pineapple Thanks....FUSION~Pastel Pencils


Yes, I'm back yet again (been crafting up a storm since returning from our little vacation!), this time to join my awesome team in welcoming you to FUSION Card Challenge~Pastel Pencils.  The assortment of  pencils and pencils, tucked into what looks to be re-purposed cans, has me thinking about jazzing up some containers of my own. I do have a soft spot for pencils having been a teacher for years upon years...
That said, I did not bring pencils or pens to the challenge; rather, I took my cue from the sketch and the colours, creating this pastel flamingo and stripes pairing,

followed by a pineapple and stripes version.

I rather like the 'swirl' element; a change from my typical same old-same old rectangle panel.

Please head over to see the beautiful cards designed by my wonderful design team:

How will the lovely pencils and inviting sketch inspire you?

Looking forward to seeing you in the gallery!
