QKR Stampede Challenge

Hello Everyone!
  WOW, here we are at another week's end ... where is the time going!  I'm sad to say this will be my last creation to share with you as the January Guest Designer for QKR Stampede!  And, I would like to thank the Leaders and team at QKR for their kindness and support!
Today's challenge is Soft Pastel Colors
 and I chose the lovely "Bouquet digi image (digi#16220)" to use for my creation.
My coloring on this pretty image was done with SU watercolor pencils and blender pen. 
Here's a list of the other items used for this creation:
Papers:  SU Pink Pirouette cs, Melissa Francis 5th Ave dp, White cs
Rubber Stamps:  The Stamp Pad Co. (front sentiment), Repeat Impressions (inside), SU Fifth Avenue Floral (front accent)
 Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Memento 'Angel Pink'
Accessories:   Marianne LR0235 die, Offray pink satin 1/4" ribbon, Kaiser pink pearl, Fiskars swivel craft knife   
I hope you'll pop over to QKR Stampede , check out the fun creations the team has designed to inspire you with ... then play along!
Here are a few other challenges I'd like to enter into:
Lady Anne's Challenge - Stamp /Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Don't forget about the blog candy I have up for grabs during the month of January!  Not just one giveaway but now there are TWO ... that's right TWO GIVEAWAY PACKAGES ... click on the photos on the top of my sidebar for all the details!
And ... as always my friends ...
