Less is More- pastel colours

Here is my card for this week's Less is More, where the challenge is to use pastel colours. I wasn't sure whether I would manage to join in this week, but I managed to squeeze in a ten minute craft moment this afternoon. The flower stamp is from Hero arts and the sentiment is from Personal Impressions.
Steve's Mum is still in Hospital. Her speech is even more mixed up than it was, so communication is frustrating for all involved. Please bear with me if I don't get round to comment much this week, but with work and hospital visits I can see the computer may not even get switched on. Think of me tomorrow. We are having our Book day dress as a character day. I'm going to be the bad tempered ladybird! After school it is parent's evening, so I'll be speaking to parents dressed as a ladybird - do you think they will take me seriously?!

Great stamp and a lovely card. Great planning - world book day followed by parent's evening dressed as a ladybird - classic. In our school its usually just the male teachers who dress up... as women.
