Pinspired Challenge #6

Lately I have been loving pink. Not my normal favorite color, but I am drawn to it lately.  When I saw the latest Pinspired Challenge, I immediately had an idea for a card. This happens rarely!  I recently had a birthday, and am making my thank you cards.  My MIL is a big fan of pink and things sparkly...so my challenge card goes to her.

I used Strathmore Watercolor paper and a Derwent Inktense pencil in fuchsia to create the ombre background.  The seam binding was also died with color from the pencil.  The sentiment is a die cut from Hero Arts using glitter paper...why is glitter so hard to photograph? I am sure my MIL will love it and that is what makes card-making fun.

Have a wonderful day.

Edited- I earned my first blog challenge badge with this card.  4-8-13
