Pretty Pastels

Hello & happy Friday to you! I hope you're all gearing up for a fabulous weekend! My stepson, his girlfriend & our 18-month-old grandson are all coming over on Sunday to go swimming & just hang out. Our pool is still in the creation phase, but my parents have a pool & they live just over the hill from us.

Anyway, moving on to today's card....I love this cardstock & how it goes perfectly with the ink colors. I absolutely love soft pastels & I'm pretty happy with how this turned out....
