Allsorts challenge 553 - Soft Pastels

Hello there, welcome to the first challenge of 2020 at Allsorts and my first post too.
Helene has chosen the theme this week and she would like to see.....
Soft Pastels on your creations.

We have a really great prize on offer for you this week from Stabilo

Here is my card.

Once again, apologies about the poor photo but the colours are actually very soft.
The image is LOTV
Background papers from The Works.

I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas/ New Year and had lots of lovely crafty presents.
This year I have not made any resolutions, which is normally not to buy anymore crafting items.
Well it usually only last about a week, so what the heck!

I did treat myself to 4 new dies before Christmas, two of which you will be seeing a great deal of, the other two (which I bought on sale, thank goodness) may take some time to appear on a card, as I have yet to fathom out how to put them together.

I will be back tomorrow with the first Penny Black and More challenge of 2020.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Your card is so pretty in those beautiful delicate shades Kath, the image is a beauty too.
I'm with you on the NY resolutions...never make 'em...can't break 'em. Also have dies that I cannot work out and they're also impulse buys from sales!!
Wishing you and your family a fabulous 2020.

such a soft and pretty card and your dp is the perfect complement to the image, I would have thought it came with it if you hadn't said.

I think the photo is perfect Kath. Such a beautiful card! I had to darken mine a bit with a photo software as it's much more pastel in real life but it didn't show up well on the screen so I darkened it a bit.
