Congratulations ombre card for Sparkle & Shine Challenge


Just stopping in quickly to share a card I created for the Sparkle & Shine Challenge.
I LOVE the ombre mint green cake in the inspiration photo!

I decided to go with a cake shaker card and try and re create that ombre green by water coloring.
I used watercolor paper, my water brush and one color of ink (pistachio pudding) to get a gradient of color.
I used the bake me a cake stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the cake and filled with shaker with mainly lime sorbet sequins and silver shimmer seed beads from Pretty Pink Posh.

I love that I now have a wedding card on hand as I don't create much of those & they're always good to have!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
