Using Pastel colours - a blast from the past

Over at 365 Cards the challenge today is to create using pastels only - my first reaction was "hmmmmm, I'll bypass this one I think!"

Then of course I remembered the easiest way to get over a tricky situation - in cardmaking at least - is to use punch art, so went to my little bag of pre-punched shapes.  [I'm that kind of crafter who only throws out the tiniest card scraps, everything else gets punched out starting with the larger punches, ending up with a 1/4" circle punch LOL!  After that, it goes in the bin....

The card I have here today is tiny, 2"x3", and the punches were 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle and 1/4" circle.  The strip at the bottom was a leftover from punching yesterday's piece for the tag - how thrifty is that!?

Colours used are:  Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Certainly Celrey, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake, Pool Party.
