I look forward to this CHALLENGE SPARK! blog posting every Friday. 

Tara was the lucky one this week to choose the challenge of ombre. There is something so eye catching about color shades from dark to light. 

Please do stop over at Grace's blog:  Create It Because You Can & Tara at her blog: Country Girl {Creates}. We have so much fun & we love it if you share your comments!

The black patterned paper along with the white quote bubble on the top of the card are from the March 2015 Paper Pumpkin kit.  The original color was black & white. You can see my first card here. And I've used this kit in a Challenge Spark! post before... must be a good one... you can see that one here!

I used a single ink pad & brayered right over the black pattern. Cut out the 'hello' from matching cardstock. I used the retiring 'Baby, We've Grown' stamp set for the BABY. And last but not least the Baby's First Framelits for the li'l ducky. Isn't he ever cute!! 

The inspiration for this card came from my friend who always liked the bright, bold & cheerful for her babies. So, here you friend! 

Colors: (from left to right in the line-up) Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade (long retired, but I'm hanging on) & Blackberry Bliss.

  1. Cool idea to make SEVERAL cards...especially when they turn out as nicely as these did!
    I seriously wonder what we ever did before those Hello You dies came out?????

    1. Those framelits have been so fun. I think the next new ones will be too!

  2. I love your set of cards! What fun to use such bold colours on a baby card!

  3. So fun! Kind of a boost to stop by :)
