Second Post for the day

Looking for CS Take It Make It Post, click here

Hello everyone!  I’m here again today with Papertrey Ink’s 8th Year Celebration!  They introduced their new Blue Skies line.

For this challenge they wanted us to create a blue ombre card using all of our favorite shades of blue.  It could be an ombre background, several of the same image stamped in shades of blue, ombre inking of a bold stamp or whatever else we could dream up!

For my one layer card I decided to go with an ombre background, take a look:

Thanks for everything

I love how this card turned out.  So what do you think? Let me know.

Hello Friend

I created a gift box for one of my coworkers who has a friend who just found out that she has breast cancer.  This box is sure to brighten up her day.

Take a look:

Hello Friend 2

I used Papertrey Ink Wet Paint Stamp Set and Summer Sunrise Dye Ink to create the sentiment.
