We are a group of Demonstrators from around the world that love to Stamp and share what we love.  What better way to share than by a Blog Hop right?  This month, our them is Let the Colours Shine.  I decided that it was a great time to bring try using the New Soft Pastels with a very old technique called Poppin' Pastels.  Also it was going to work perfect with a  die cutting Technique called partial Die Cutting that I did during my Facebook live on Thursday night.  So, here is my card.  I will include the supply list below.
