Friendship Vines

 Creating an ombre effect behind the vines was a wonderful choice. I also added just a hint of lace using pieces of a paper doily on two of the corners. I kept the card simple by adding a small greeting in the middle. What do you think?

   Itty Bitty Greetings

   Midnight Muse A-2
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, Scraps
   Irresistibly Yours DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Marina Mist 2-1/4 x 1-1/4

   Midnight Muse
   Marina Mist
   Soft Sky

   Die Cutting
   Sponge Brayer

   Small Oval Punch
   Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
   White Tea Lace Doilies
   Basic Pearl Jewels
   Sponge Brayer

First, I took a panel of Irresistibly Yours DSP and created an ombre effect using my sponge brayer.

I started with the Midnight Muse and sponged from the top toward the middle. I stopped about a third of the way down. 

Then I applied the Marina Mist from the middle up and down a bit.

Lastly, I sponged the Soft Sky from the bottom toward the middle. Mainly, I wanted to make sure the colors blended together. 

I then wiped down the panel with a paper towel. This removes the ink from the embossed vines.

I then adhered a piece of white paper doily to two opposite corner, and added a greeting to the center of the card. I did not want to cover the background.
