Kitchen Sink Stamps - Pretty in Pastels

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday, thanks for stopping by today.  Don't adjust your screen...no, I didn't have someone hijack my blog!  I know what you're thinking, she must not have created that card, there's no Black layers!  Honestly, I did created this card!  I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could really create with no Black layers, besides, the Color Challenge from JUGS was so pretty and soft, I just couldn't toss in  those Black layers.

Okay, so I have my stamps, my colors and used my "creative license" with Card Patterns Sketch 107, and here's what I came up with

To go along with the lovely JUGS spring colors, I used the beautiful Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Hydrangeas for my blossoms and leaves, the stems are from the Multi Step Lilacs set, the sentiment from Vintage Words.  I wasn't too sure how the Soft Sky would look as the leaves and stems, but I'm quite happy with them!
