Dreams at PanPastel UK

Good morning folks, hope you're having a good weekend. I'm having a lazy one as I tripped over the puppy yesterday and twisted my knee, ouch! Still its a good excuse not to tackle the weeding lol. We've got a new challenge over at PanPastel UK and this week our theme is 'Dreams'.  As usual our lucky winner will receive a fab PanPastel Starter set from our lovely sponsor Berni over at Your Creativity Store.

I've used this gorgeous digi from Sweet Pea Stamps, she's by Ching Chou Kuik and she's called 'Poppy from the Mist', I think she looks like she's day dreaming - perfect for our challenge so I've created a dream of fairyland in the background. The background was created with PanPastels, Memento inks and Lavinia Stamps. The image was coloured with Graph'It Markers and PanPastels, the flowers look a bluey shade but in real life they are much more purple. Why can't I take pictures of purple? Answers on a postcard please lol :-)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to stamps: make your mark
Alphabet Challenge: F is for Fantasy
CRAFT: Land of make believe
Crafty Catz: Purple
Just Add Ink: Fun background
Simon Says Stamp and Show: colouring mediums
Sweet Pea Stamps: your favourite charity
( I work for a mental health charity so this is an easy one for me lol)
Tuesday Throwdown: Make your own background

I've got a ginormous pile of ironing to tackle and Sunday lunch to prepare then I can put my feet up and do some colouring. 
Have a lovely day and thanks for popping by
