Ombre Congrats

A few weeks ago during the Unique Blog Hop I shared a background I created inspired by my nails - well, I finally decided what to do with the piece I had left over :)

Supplies: Dylusions Grape mist; Mr. Huey's white mist; Paper Smooches sentiment; Spellbinders butterfly die; Studio Calico wooden heart; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Versamark; Stampendous Moonstone embossing powder; scrap of Shrinky Dink plastic; purple pearls from stash

Hard to get a good picture of clear elements, isn't it! Once I'd adhered the piece to the cardfront, one of the corners refused to lay flat. I decided to make that an "I meant to do that" element and curled up all four corners, and placed a pearl on the card base in each corner. 

Here's the photo of my nails that inspired the background (and no, they don't look like that

This card is perfect for the current Keep It Simple! challenge of Ombre - first time I've played along there in a while :)

That really is a cool background, and the clear embossed butterfly is just a great idea! Love those corners too!

Be-u-ti-ful! Your nails were the perfect inspiration--love it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your nails!!! Forget matching handbag and shoes. It's time to carry around a matching card! Awesome ombre effect (on both!)
hugs, Asha

You really do rock the misting techniques! And purple, always a fine choice.
