Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary – Day 8 Card

I actually have a two-for-one post today.  After the Banquet, I took the day off from just about everything yesterday, and I used a bit of that time to sit and create a few cards.

Yesterday’s challenge was to create something with the color blue using the ombre effect.  This first card is actually a variation on a card I created a few weeks ago:


This Phrase Play #5 die is so perfect for shaker cards – it takes away most of the guesswork, which is essential for me! (LOL)

I know the contest allows for only one entry per person.  But I was having so much fun that I created another one with the same theme.
