Kwerner colour inspiration #34 (#17 if your me) & This Thursday challenge

I was a little worried when I saw the colours for this weeks colour inspiration over at Kristna's blog, I loved them but I don't really do subtle in my cards!
Then I saw how well it fitted the challenge over at This thursday's , which is naughty or nice! I was really excited. Well you couldn't get much nicer then a cute little baby card could you!?

The colours are pale plum, perfect plum, bordering blue, sage shadow, certainly celery and you could add a neutral colour.
I had such fun with it though, I tried this stamp and pastel technique where you stamp your image in versa mark, then use your Stampin' pastels to colour them in. It gives such a pretty and subtle effect! I know I will be using this technique a lot!

Anyway leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
Stamp set used (my old favourite) Nursery Necessities from Stampin' Up.
BTW can you believe this is 17 in a row for me! I'm even impressed ;)
