Ombre Thank You Card

Sunday, June 7, 2015

Hello, Hello!
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!

Today's card was actually made for one of my son's teacher's aides, but I got my Paper Smooches order in the mail and made another one instead. And it was inspired by Sparkle and Shine Challenge!

Isn't this photo lovely!? 
The mint colors, ombre, big flower, and it's a cake! I have a pinterest board full of beautiful wedding cakes! No, I'm not having a wedding (I would LOVE one since my husband and I got married at the town hall, and no fancy reception, 16 years ago...), I just love looking at pretty
Anyway, here is what I came up with...

I also decided to enter this card into Watercolor Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh


It is sponsored by fabulous companies! 
I have another design for this blog hop, but I figured today's card is watercolored so why not enter it to increase my chance of winning a prize!? Ha Ha :-D

As you can see, I watercolored my background with Coastal Cabana making minty ombre just like the cake. Then I die cut the sentiment, die cut 4 more with the Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, and Pool Party cardstock. I nested them all back in where the watercolor sentiment was cut out, layering them slightly offset so you can see another ombre there! 
I also watercolored on some left over watercolor paper with the same color, then die cut the scribble flower, adhered it on vellum and trimmed the outline. Of course I had to add some sequins in the center of this pretty flower!


I pretty much sprinkled my Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins randomly all over the card. I chose this color to repeat the white candies in the apothecary jar.

My notes...

Paper: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Watercolor Paper, Vellum
Ink: Coastal Cabana Reinker
Accessory: Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow, Lime Sorbet, and Shamrock Sequins
Tool: Die-namics Many Thanks (My Favorite Things), Bold Blossom Stand-Alone (Essentials by Ellen)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I will have another watercolor card tomorrow so please come back!
