April Color Challenge

Today is the April Color Challenge at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration. Today is also my mom's birthday. Funny story: when I created this month's color challenge, I didn't realize that it would fall on my mom's birthday. Her favorite color is green. I took full advantage of this irony to kill two birds with one stone. I present to you my mom's birthday card:

I'm guessing there's a good chance that she's going to see her card here before she gets in the mail; but that's ok.

I had so much fun with last week's Ombre challenge that I wanted to try it out again. I used a Stampin' Sponge with the Gumball Green ink and just added more the farther down the cardstock I went.

I have to admit a mistake I made while creating this. When I stamped the Make a Wish, I didn't have my framelits out to measure where I should stamp on the cardstock. So, I either had to cut it off center, or use more cardstock (there was already something on the other side). I decided to cut it off center and then embellish it with candy dots. Now I can say that I got my mom a card, flowers and candy for her birthday! ;)

I hope these colors INKspire you. We would love for you to link up your own creations with us at SSINKpiration!
