I had this card completed yesterday and was going to post it on Monday, but since I was one project short for the week, I thought I would put it up today.
Yesterday I had posted the Wedding Favor Box using Certainly Celery (105125) and Pretty in Pink (100459) and had those colors still on my work space. Thus, a card using those colors. Using the gradient technique on the Blooming with Kindness (126422) gave the image some interest since it was stamped in Crumb Cake ink (126975). The sentiment, Perfect Punches (120516) is in Early Espresso (126974) and punched with the Extra- Large Oval (119859).
For the gradient effect on the image, I pounced Certainly Celery (126958) with a sponge dauber randomly. I embossed the pink layer with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder (120175) to add some depth to the card. The image is finished off using the Stampin' Distress Tool ( 127562), adding Basic Jewels Rhinestones for the "bling factor". The gorgeous ribbon is the 1 1/4" Two-Tone Ribbon (129294) from the Spring Catalog. This is my first time using it, although I have had it for awhile. I love it. Now I need to find some new projects to use it on!
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
