Less is more - pastels

This is my card for this week's challenge on Less is More. Not exactly what I set out to do - I used my chalks with this dragonfly stamp that I have had since year dot and not used for ages. At least I didn't trap my finger in the crocodile clip that comes with the cotton balls for the chalks this time - done that before and soooo painful.

It's interesting to see how many people have used chalks or pastels for this challenge (myself included) it must be something about the adjective 'pastel' which makes us rush to them... it's good to use things we have used for a while!
Sweet card Linby, great image.
Thanks for using us again and we'll see you next week!

Seems lots of crafters have been bitten by that particular chalking crocodile lol... Really liking your choice of colours this week and your dragonfly images is fab:-)

This is a lovely card, great colouring. You've reminded me I've got a similar stamp somewhere, will have to investigate! That crocodile has got me more than once too!! Jo x

I love the shaped panel and that gorgeous dragonfly. Glad to hear you still have fingers - it's a dangerous business this crafting!
