Winter Ombré

Don't you just love days where you get to play?  There's nothing better than getting a little ink on my fingers and dreaming up fun in a crafty way!  ;)
I used the Four Seasons Hostess set and a little ombre on vellum to create the card I made today.  I was completely inspired by this picture from the Stampin' Royalty team!  I twisted the iSpy Sketch a little bit to add my center hole so you could see the ombre'd vellum inside the card. If you look closely, the ribbon is also ombre'd!  Is that even a word?!?! ;)
This also qualifies for the Just Add Ink: Blue & Bling Challenge.  

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Four Seasons
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Tempting Turquoise
Paper: Vellum, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Temping Turquoise, Island Indigo, Versamark
Accessories: Pewter Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Large Pearls

Have a fab day!
Julz  :)

 Here's my clue - The Googly Ghouls Clear-Mount Bundle!
