You're Lovely - Live Happy

This is a card idea that I cased from Angie Leach which she cased from a Leadership card.
This is another card made with the You've Lovely stamp set.  This was not my first choice of stamp sets that I wanted to earn free, but now it is my favorite as well as the Decorative Dots Texture Impressions Folder.  Both are available for FREE in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  You spend $50 each to earn each item. The technique is from a favorite trend right now called ombre which you will see in cards as well as fashion.  The base of my card is Raspberry Ripple cardstock.  Then a layer of Whisper White cardstock.  The panels are Raspberry Ripple, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Primrose Petals.  I colored the flowers with Strawberry Slush ink and stems and leaves with Pistachio Pudding ink and Blender Pens.  The ribbon is the Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon.  I also used Rhinestone Jewels for the centers of the flowers, but I also added a butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslits
The card below is the same style, but using colors of Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding.  The ribbon is 1/8" Bermuda Bay Taffeta Ribbon.
