Let's have some fun creating a little Ombré today!

The first thing I did to start this card was grab my Blending Brush, some Basic White Cardstock and Polished Pink ink.  Working from the bottom I swirled and swirled my Blending Brush until I was happy with the 
Ombré background.

Next, I stamped the flowers with VersaMark ink on Vellum and heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder.  Vellum heat embosses fine.  You just need to make sure you don't overheat the Vellum, or it can curl.  I then put the die in the Hybrid Embossing Folder, aligned the heat embossed vellum flowers and die cut and dry embossed all in one pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  

The more I use the Hybrid Embossing Folder, the more I like it.  If you haven't tried one, you should.  All my fears of destroying the embossing folder were for nothing!

Before I adhered the Vellum flowers and leaves on my Ombré background I laid them in the approximate location that I wanted them so that I could see where to stamp some leaves and little flowers with the Polished Pink ink.

Where I wanted to stamp the little flowers on the lighter Ombré area, I stamped-off first before I stamped on the card.  

Once I completed my stamping, I adhered the vellum flowers and leaves.  Each flower was adhered with one dimensional in the center of each flower.  For the leaves, I added a little liquid glue to the tips of the leaves that would be under the flower, and then tucked them under the flower and held them in place until the glue dried.

I also wanted to scatter a few of the tiny die-cut flowers on the card front.  I used my blending brush to lightly tint a Basic White scrap with Polished Pink ink as the pure Basic White looked too stark.  I then die-cut three tiny flowers from the tinted cardstock and three from Vellum.  I scattered these in pairs on the front of the card.

To complete the card, I Stamped the sentiment on Basic Black with VersaMark and heat embossed with White embossing powder.

The sentiment was added to the card front with dimensionals, and Basic Pearls were added to the center of each flower.

For the inside of the card, I simply stamped the trio of flowers with Polished Pink on the lower corner and added a sentiment stamped with Black Memento.  The Basic Black Mat adds the finishing touch.
