Ombre Butterfly Card

Playing along with challenges is not normally on my list of things to do or that I end up having time for, but I still enjoy looking at them. And, every now and then one of them really captures my attention and gets my creative juices flowing. The current Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger did just that for me the moment I saw the gorgeous ombre image Cath shared. It certainly inspired me and it gave me the perfect excuse to create a birthday card that I will be using very soon!

As I mentioned, the inspiration came from the Moxie Fab ombre image. Ombre is everywhere right now. I have to admit that I have been slow to incorporate it into my paper crafting. I am not sure why. It is very simple to create. All I had to do was dig through my stash of cardstock to find a nice selection of colors perfect for my card.

SUPPLIES |
Cardstock: American Crafts
Patterned Paper: BoBunny
Punches: Martha Stewart
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink
