Pink ombré

One of the things I like to do the most is to CASE other designers. Over at City Crafter they are celebrating their 6th birthday with a CASE challenge, I chose card number 3.

I was inspired by the ombre effect in pink, the layout with the die cut leaves, the black sentiment and gems.

I started out sponging the background with spun sugar and picked raspberry DIs. I cut out a rose bouquet using a die from Memeoy Box. Then I heat embossed some Bo Bunny stamped butterflies on inked paper, fussy cut them and mounted them on foam, slightly bending their wings. 

The sentiment is in Norwegian, it's the definition of "greeting".
Various gems and sequins from my stash.


This card is for:
City Crafter Challenge - #307 CASE
Creative With Stamps Challenge - #1 Butterfly
Moving along with the Times - #18 Spring Flowers

I think that you have made a super CASEing, this bouquet is really perfect on your sweet ombré background and LOVE your choose of pink tones. The embossed butterflies mounted on foam look just amazing and they give a lot of interest and dimension to the composition!!! The different sequins and the black sentiment catch continuously the eyes all around to the center and it seems to me that these butterflies fly... :D Such a fabulous movement in your card, Pia! Very well done!
