Spread your wings

Hello there! Today my card has been inspired by the very talented Marion Vagg - her card this week at Muse is so pretty - I love it:)

I used her chevron design background but instead of rainbow colours I went for an ombre look....I am addicted to this technique at the moment LOL! I also used this week's sketch from Cas(e) this sketch.....it's been ages since I have played along with all their fun challenges.

Thanks so much for coming by blog today xx
