Something a little different

Florals Card - Pan Pastels 
Did you wake up to rain like we did this morning.  And here's me thinking it was going to be hot and sunny again.  I was up early this morn, and while the house was quite thought I'd get out my Pan Pastels and have a crafty hour.  It's been a while since I've used them but wanted to make and entry for this months Pan Pastel Blog Challenge - Florals.  
My rose is loosely based on my Granddads favourite, 'Glenfiddich' and then I used white to shade pinks purples and greens for the flowers and foliage in the background to give them a soft look.  Working on white flowers took me back to my cake decorating days and the hours of dusting white flowers that went into the wedding cakes I used to make. Heres a few close up pics of my finished card.





Well I'm off back to chat to the camera now, so have a lovely day, thanks for calling by and catch up again soon :-) C
