A little while ago I entered a challenge on CASology for "word" and won on Week 20 for "word". The prize was a wonderful set of stamps from A-muse. I always think that the best compliment is to use a gift/prize and that was the inspiration for this ombre card for my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law's anniversary. I think the effect is more subtle in person especially on that second heart!
The first thing I did was to punch the border. After that I stamped the hearts and followed that with the sentiment. To tie it all together I added ribbon under the punched border. What you can't see is that I used the softest pink to continue the heart theme on the inside of the card and the envelope.
