Into Every Garden ...

Happy Sunday, dear friends. This is a  quickie post to show you a card I made for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #94. Yesterday I went out on a limb: experimented with bold colours and made a blinding card. Today is quite the opposite. I began the day in a slothful contemplative mood (yes, it's possible!) and decided to play with some old toys: soft pastels.  I really like this week's sketch, which made light work of the card. A peaceful relaxing end to a hectic week... perfect!
The patterned paper is from Crafts-Too "Oriental"  6x6 pack. 
The central panel is a piece of blue CS. I stamped the clouds and rain drops  from WMS Asian Gardens Additions set in Versamark to get that tone on tone effect.
I stamped the sentiment from that set in Memento Tuxedo Black and I cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 20.  
Flat back pearls in a row. That's all the card needed.  Of course, my addiction to foam tape is  still going strong!
Ok ok,  I got a little carried away on the inside. Not entirely CAS, I know...
That's my card for today. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out. I'm especially chuffed that no man or animal was harmed in its production!  You'll find this card sitting pretty over at Raise the Bar #101 where Cloudy Skies is taking centre-stage and Make It Monday #86 where is no shortage of cool cards!

Until next time, have a blessed Sunday!
