Pastels - NO PINK - Challenge at A Day For Daisies...What? NO PINK!?

Hello All!  A new challenge and new images are released today at A Day For Daisies.  Boy, the new challenge was definitely tricky for me.    You are to use pastel colors in your project but there's a catch ---a major catch in my opinion *snicker*---- NO PINK.  Yes, it's true, PINK is barred from this challenge.  Say it isn't so.  I'm outraged - LOL :).  I LOVE PINK but I actually pulled this one off.  Thank goodness for lavender!  I used "Lazy Summer" and colored it up with all the 000 and 0000 copics I have in all colors (except pink..grrr) :D  Then, I had this cute little wood shadow box so I painted it up with white acrylic paint and added a printed paper frame (cut with square SB Nesties).  I made the flower from the same paper and added a couple fabric flowers and glitter embellishments.  Overall, I'm really liking it even if there isn't pink in there ;)
Please be sure to check out the A Day For Daisies website for the wonderful new releases and please play along with us over at the A Day For Daisies blog!

Happy Friday!!! <3 Lisa
