Less is More (pastels)

The challenge this week over at Less is More is pastels. I've attempted at least 3 cards and failed dismally :(
Not sure why I couldn't do it but all my ideas went in the bin!
 Then I was inspired by Chrissie's card on her blog and got out a rollagraph that I bought about 3 years ago at a craft show and never used!!
I inked up with Brilliance Peacock and created a mat with the same ink.  The butterflies I cut off from the leftovers and glittered them. A couple of pearls for the flowers and the sentiment is from my Xyron digital printer.
I'm quite happy with the result now and hope you like it too :))

I'm flattered that you were inspired by something of mine Valerie... this is lovely and perfectly pastel! I love pales blues and greens together.
Thanks for being here again and see you next time!

Ha! Ha! My three attempts have gone in the bin too, but I would be more than happy if my fourth turned out anything like this.
It's beautiful! Love the glitter and pearls.
