Ombre Hello - Sparkle and Shine Challenge

Good morning! YAY for a new challenge at the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Blog - this week we have a beautiful photo inspiration, and a prize sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh! I pulled out and used some of my Winnie and Walter dies and put them to good use on this card:

Here is the photo inspiration we have to play with this time around - two of my favorite things: ombre and the color mint! LOVE!

I started off by cutting a scallop panel from watercolor paper using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. I created a watercolor ombre background on it with a couple shades of MFT dye ink, then added one of the cutout flowers from In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways. I added a good mound of Glossy Accents to the center, and then sprinkled on some Pretty Pink Posh Silver Shimmer Seed Beeds - they dried and stayed put perfectly! Finished off by cutting out the In a Word: Hello Cutaway die and adhering it with foam adhesive, then added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, then mounted it all over some pattern paper from Simple Stories.

I hope you will join in and play along! Looking forward to seeing your creations! Have a wonderful day!!!
