Soft Pastel card and a tag created for Dusty Attic .

Hello everyone
I welcome you to my blog today
here is my June project for 

This month I decided to share some card/tags with you .
Recently our niece was married 
and I wanted to create a hand made card for them to keep 
Emma said she really loved it and thought it was special 
as it was handmade .
I chose these colors for their softness and romantic feel.

Love You 
Dusty Attic materials used 
Love you Arrows DA1070
French Flourish border DA0275
Dusty in Colour /Navajo White  DA 0903

I created a small pocket inside the card to hold a tag 
and a gift of money for the wishing well .

for Libby 
I wanted to create something special and unique
 for my treasured friend Libby
I used the alphas and created a spot to add Libby's name .
I love the soft pastel paints from Dusty Attic .
they are a dream to use
They go on very smooth and dry very quickly .
