DeNami Design Blog Hop ~ Pretty Pastels!

Welcome to My Paper Tales! You should have hopped over here from the jazzy Tenia Nelson's blog! If not you can catch up at the DeNami blog at any time...you don't want to miss anyone ~ prizes, prizes! Our theme this month is pretty pastels. I went to work with a soft blue, grey and green pallet.

I've used the fun fish bowl to create my little under water scene with a cute petit fours set. I love this little treasure chest! I stamped the fish bowl then fussy cut the center out, glittered it and added a piece of clear acetate and foam dots to the back. My little scene is stamped on a piece of white card stock, colored with chalk, glittered then added to the floral die cut label (DP is BasicGrey). I attached the fish bowl label to the top of this. My labels are from My Favorite Things and I have a scattering of pearls from my stash. I added the large flourish stamp to the corners and my matching sentiment! This sweet checked pastel cardstock is by Lasting Impressions.

That's all for me friends, now hop yourself on over to the visit the ever so delightful Andrea Matthews I know she'll knock your socks off! ~Lisa
