Ombre and Glitter

I have never made an ombre card, so when I saw the challenge at JUGS I just had to give it a try.

And the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to use glitter.

The dot embossed background was sponged with Memento Angel Pink and Rose Bud, using a lighter touch at the top.  Traced a chipboard number 5 on Core'dnations GlitterSilk and cut it out.  Die cut the cake with a Sizzix die, colored with Touch Twin markers and added Stickles to the frosting and flames on the candles.  Found this girly ribbon in one of my ribbon jars.  Added a girly touch with the pink feather and layered onto a pink card base.
Had so much fun making this that I had to make another one in purple.

Used some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Dusty Concord to die the ruffled ribbon purple.  Feathers are fun!

Thanks for dropping in!


  1. Love them both Sue and what I thought was kind of funny is that my first card for this challenge I did in purple as well...but had to make another one because my inking wasn't gradient by the time I was finished. Lol
    These are wonderful cards, love the feathers, and I am thrilled you joined us at JUGS this week~
