Birthday Wishes for JUGS #262 - Ombre Technique

Here is my card for this week's JUGS challenge to use the Ombre Technique.  I used shades of pink on the Heidi Swap stencil for the background.  I sponged Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose, and Strawberry Slush going down the stencil.  I really like how it turned out.  Then I stamped the SU Flower Shop image in Strawberry Slush ink, sponged Pretty In Pink ink over it, and punched it with the matching punch.  I added pearls to the center.  The leaves are from SU Stippled Blossoms stamped in Wild Wasabi ink.  The sentiment from SU Bring On The Cake is also stamped in Wild Wasabi.  I did some paper-piercing around the edges of the sentiment panel and mounted it with foam tape.  The mats are Pretty In Pink and the card base is MFT Smooth White.

I am also linking my card to Verve's October Pink Power Diva Dare.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week.
Happy Stamping,
