Pastels - pink, purple and green...oh my!

Another set of challenges out of my comfort zone!  As soon as I saw Pastels as the theme over at The Pink Elephant, I remembered borrowing a beautiful CTMH butterfly set from my friend Anne.  At first, the large butterfly in the set really struck me like a butterfly tattoo that a woman could have tattooed across the small of her who knows how I ended up "softening" them into a pastel card!!  I wanted to use chalks...but that went totally wrong.  Instead, I sponged on CTMH blush, petal and used a light green ribbon.  This way, the pastels are also meeting the requirements of the Color Chef challenge. 

Leaving the pastels behind...I had to finish one more Mother's day card that had a computer generated sentiment...and even a computer generated image!  It's a regular old MS Word clipart image with no color.  I just didn't have a good image to go with the quote...which I thought was too cute to pass up!
