Ombre fun!

I decided to use some of the challenges this week to make a special card for my daughter who turns 13 this week.
And, Oh! what fun I had!!!
My daughter is an athlete and has done really well in the last 6 months, without any formal training at all!
So I thought the shoe motif from Simon Says Stamp's All Boy stamp set would be perfect for her!
She is still quite girly though, so I decided to go with pink Ombre!

I used Memento inks Lilac posies, Rose bud and Angel pink to watercolour the shoes and London fog  to watercolour the background.
I decided to ink the background card to give and Ombre look to the whole card.
I heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts and Winnie and Walter on a vellum panel and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.
I just love it...I hope she does too!

I am submitting this card for the Friday Mashup challenge and the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolour blog hop and the Blog named Hero 'Tic Tac Toe" challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
