Today's card uses the sketch from CAS(E) Sketch! challenge #160 which can be found here. I am on a Pool Party and Soft Sky kick so I went with an Ombre look for my card. So fun!
To create my card, I first stamped my sentiment. Then I used the cute heart border from the Birthday Bloom stamp set and 3 shades of ink: Soft Sky, Pool Party, and Bermuda Bay. They blend perfectly for the graduated tones of color that is known as Ombre. The flower is from the same set and is watercolored and hand cut. The sketch doesn't really call for anything next to the sentiment but I couldn't resist :)
All my supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be found in my Online Store here.
