Ombre Flower and published card!

 

 
 

Today I have made a card for the Card Creations ombre challenge at Moxie Fab world + make your own embellishment at A blog named Hero. I was also inspired by the Hello/  spring card challenge at Hero Arts so the stamps I used are all from Hero Arts;
Graph bg
Layered Flowers
Magic of Christmas
Fancy Dies; Upper Case

To get the ombre effect on my flower I used Distress ink and layered on Tattered Rose using daubers. I used the same technique for the leaves.

  
 
 
I have a card published in this wonderfully inspiring issue that I thought I could share today too:
 

 
                    I'm also showing off my flower card at Oozak; Anything goes, spring, the catered crop  and I just saw that  it fits the color challenge at Play Date Cafe too (-:

Have a great day, hugs, Karin
