Ombre Wedding Card

Hello!

Today I wanted to share another card created for Stretch Your Stamps 2.


This one was inspired by Laura Sterckx. She created a beautiful, pink, ombre background that I fell in love with! Here's my take:



I used the Delicate Pattern cling stamp by Penny Black. It's such a pretty stamp! I white embossed it before adding two shades of blue; Sea Glass and Surf Blue from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from a set called Inside Out Sayings, also from SSS. I white embossed that onto a piece of vellum and added a few blue sequins and silver thread to finish the card.

Thanks for your visit! I hope to be back after work later tonight with a card from day 3! ♥
