Cardmaking and crafts

My main craft love is cardmaking however there will be bits and bobs scattered around that are non-cardmaking, maybe a bit of baking, embroidery, knitting - whatever takes my fancy on the day

I've been having a play

I have decided I 'need' pan pastels, I have bought a couple of good quality artist pastels to have a play with and have decided I really do need pan pastels. 

My birthday is coming up so hopefully I'll be able to have a few for that but I just can't decide which colours to have.  I've heard recommendations from people that black and white are both good colours to get because their so useful but i am so torn because they just dont appeal to me :(

This is a card I have made using indigoblu stamps and my artist pastels (all 2 of them) which I applied  using cut and dry foam.

If anyone has got any advice on which pan pastels I need first and also any advice on whether I should buy the applicators or use that money for more colours I'd be glad to hear from anyone.

I am entering this into the pan pastels panpastels challenge , it is challenge number 3 and has a theme of nature (fingers crossed I get lucky and get to start my collection off), wish me luck :)
