Addicted to CAS Challenge #128

Hi there, blog friends! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and as hostess I have chosen 'Ombre' for the code word. 


Here is my take on the code word:


I used SSS Audrey Blue ink to create the ombre effect on the MFT sentiment and added a few stars from Mama Elephant's Confetti die.

I had lots of new goodies on my desk, so I decided to create a 2nd card:


The same layout, except a different die cut and I moved the sentiment banner down to enhance the ink blending on the die cut
.
Once again, we are being sponsored by Happy Little Stampers and the winner will receive a $15. Gift Card to the store...we hope you'll join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Card #1:
Stamps and Dies: MFT - Smile, Slanted Sentiment Strips, Blueprints 15; Mama Elephant - Confetti
