MAKE IT MONDAY #208: OMBRE STAMPING

Hi there dear friends!!  I have a fun card inspired by Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday.  Laurie Willison shared this week's Ombre Stamping challenge and you can find it here.  This card was also inspired by this card by Audrey Tokach who is one of my favorite card makers!! Thanks Audrey for your inspiration!!!
Here's my take on the challenge:
I used PTI's Baby Button Bits and Fly Away Stamp sets along with some PTI Cloud dies for this card.  For the Ombre Technique, I used Spring Rain, Blueberry Skies, and Enchanted Evening inks.  Love, love, love the ombre effect!!
The sunburst and stitched circles are Simon Says Stamp dies.  I layered the scene on top of Blueberry Sky patterned paper.  I love the more masculine card that will be perfect for a Man Shower my hubby has at work tomorrow.  My hubby was happy with the design and of course I was blessed with some much needed crafty time.  It's a win-win situation for us both!!

Thanks for stopping in and I wish you a very happy end of the week!!
