Finally getting to try out some of my (too) many new stamp sets.  This one is called "Ombre Sentiments", the background paper is a pattern paper also called "Ombre Strips".  Well I thought, what better two to put together.

I really like the sentiment stamp how it appears to be stamped lighter at the top and then gradually darker, the same with the paper.  After stamping the sentiment I thought it could use a little sumpin' more, so what better to celebrate with than balloons and a few little confetti dots here and there.

Love the paper which certainly makes for a quick and simple card.

I carried the theme over to the inside as well.

Still very clean and simple, but festive I think.

Would love to hear from you, please leave a comment.

Ooops forgot to ask... when you did your stamp in ombre did you just ink it in the lightest ink and create darker with markers?
