This was a fun card to make, although it was hard to photograph well.  I used a Dreamweaver's stencil and ran it through my Big Shot to emboss the cardstock.  I left the stencil taped to the cardstock and used Pan Pastels to color the image - greens fading to blues.  After taking the stencil off, I ran a paper towel through the Pan Pastel and swiped it across the paper to shade the background.

Since the card base is black, I also wanted to do something on the inside so I could write a message.  I used the same papers and cut them out with LifeStyle Crafts dies and added a piece of the same silk ribbon to the inside that is on the front.

Love it! I do like Pan Pastel too and plan to make better use of them in the New Year.
