OMGosh, when I read your first paragraph I thought you meant you'd combined all types of pastels on one card and I wondered how in the world... Now I see you have you have three gorgeous cards, sigh. Love how the tree top is in the clouds on your first card, then the fabulous heron on the second which is one of my all time favorite stamps, and the geese on the third with that beautiful sky -- wow! I will head over to Magenta now to read about the different types of pastels.

What fascinates me about your work is not only your incredible talent for design but also for introducing us to media I’ve never heard of. Your skies on these three cards are just gorgeous. You blend color so beautifully! Three really beautiful cards!

Winter sunset and snow covered with sun rays create a beautiful landscape. I love how you used the colors in the first card to bring this image to life. All the cards are so beautiful, all are stunningly beautiful
