Ombre

Hi again - my second card for today has been inspired by the very talented Laura Sterckx - her beautiful card was in the stretch your stamps 2 class. Her version was pink but I have changed mine to blue to suit a few challenges. I really love the ombre look over an embossed background - so pretty!

Thanks again for your visit xx
