Pastels at the Belli Challenge

Good day all. 
Welcome to another blog post and thank you so much for stopping by.
I do hope your week is going better than mine. A little drama in my crafting world with a broken Grand Calibur.  I was unable to complete the inside of this card as planned because the plates and die are stuck in the machine. The handle will not move and there are bits rolling around inside! Yikes! Spellbinders customer service are looking into the problem.  If anyone knows of a better alternative to the GC, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

On the brighter side I was able to complete the front for our new challenge at the 
  Belli Challenge

Darsie would like to see Pastels on your creations for this Challenge #167

I've used an adorable Tilda on my card today and she has been coloured with Copics.
Spellbinders Grand Labels One and Grand Decorative Labels One used for the shape.


For the Top layer I stamped a LaBlanche floral stamp in SU Certainly Celery then embossed with SU Elegant Bouquet embossing folder. These have been neglected for quite some time....how does that happen:)  
Stickles Cotton Candy added to the flowers and butterflies
Ribbon from my stash
SB Back to Basics Tags - sentiment in Word
MS Butterfly punches

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Hugs,

Pat, your card is gorgeous! I love your coloring and the background stamp. I had my GC do something similar and I had to mail it in. It was a PITA, but they did take care of it and mail it back. The problem is that there isn't anything that can handle the big dies.

Your card is beautifully stamped and coloured, Pat. I love all your embellishing work, too...gorgeous card!

Sorry to hear about your GC problems. My GC did exactly the same, and although it was collected and repaired quickly, I was really disappointed when it broke after very little use. I have a big shot, which is my work horse and just use my GC for bigger dies. I hope you get your GC repaired quickly xx
