Opals are a girls best friend?

This week on SPA our host is Nancy Maxwell James and she has chosen the theme of "birthstones". I was a bit stumped at first with this theme, but figured I'd think of it more of a colour theme. I was born in October so my birthstone is an opal, which isn't a colour as such! lol
but I came up with these 2 postcards for the theme.
all images are from Lisas Altered Art.

I was born on a Wednesday (full of woe), thank goodness I wasn't born in October as well LOL. Delightful postcards, both.

Opals can be almost any color they choose, Mandy! These are beautiful, soft pastel pieces.
