Happy birthday, Claudine

Today is my sister-in-law's birthday. My niece told me that her favourite colours are purple and royal blue, so I made this card for her.
I used the "You're so" set from Reverse Confetti to stamp the sentiment in Versamark, then heat emboss with some silver embossing powder. I then masked off the sentiment, and added the Tim Holtz / Stamper's Anonymous "Lace" stencil, and blended some Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks over the top.
 I faded the ink off underneath the sentiment to match the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches challenge.

I'll also be sharing this card at Less is More for their "Ombre" challenge. 

Thanks for visiting :)

What a beautiful and elegant card Michelle. Fabulous use of ombré colours and I especially like the way you faded them out to almost nothing. Super crisp embossing too.
Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More
