Bella Love Card redux with Pastels

I have had my Stampin' Pastels since I became a demonstrator and never opened them or used them because I already had some other no-name pastels and was not a fan of the medium. Well I broke those babies open last night and decided to redo this card as my coworker requested a Valentine to give to his wife. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised how incredibly non-messy Stampin' Pastels are. I was able to control the amount of color I used and gently blew away the excess with no streaking or smearing.
