September Cupcake Craftoom - Pretty Pastels

Hi!

Welcome to the September Cupcake Craftroom monthly challenge! This month's challenge is Pretty Pastels. I have used some new papers in the Cupcake Cards and Crafts store. 

Here is what I have to share with you using a sample of this collection.  
I started by creating a card base using the Pastel Blossom sheet as my card base. I then took the Lemonade Polka dot patterned paper and cut a negative in the center using a scalloped nestie. 
As you can see from this close up, I  had some fun with twine and I used that in the background for my darling little dinosaur from Paper Smooches which was paper pieced using the Pastel Chevrons print. I added some buttons, and I created a sentiment banner also from Paper Smooches using Light Pistachio. 
You have all month to show us your work using pretty pastels. We hope you will link up and play along with us. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope your September is off to a fine start! This month is super packed with activities! I am not sure I have switched off of Summer mode yet!
Big Hugs,
~Tammy~

In order to participate in the Cupcake Craftroom Challenge, do you need to use paper from the Cupcake Cards and Craft store? or can you use any paper/stamp you want?
