A scramble card

Say what!  A scramble card?

For those who don't know, a scramble card is a card made for a scramble challenge (must make card using given theme, take photo, upload and link to challenge post all under 90 minutes) hosted by volunteering Hero Arts flickr group members.

Today's challenge is hosted by paperpicnic(Jayne), the theme is Card on Card, you can check out the details here.

I inked Hero Arts Garden Flowers by Lia set using four distress ink (Old Paper, Squeezed Lemonade, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint) and stamp on white CS to create an "ombre" look for the background, and distress the edges with Crushed Olive.

Then I stamped the book shape from the Hero Arts I Love Books set in Tuxedo Black twice on Hot Pink CS and hand cut.  Next I stamp the greetings with Unicorn and heat embossed with white EP on one of the book shape panel.  Die cut the "congrats" using the Stamp and Cut Congrats set and adhere the other.   Then attache both panel to make into mini card.  Add mini card to card and embellish with mini flower sequins by Simon Says Stamp.

I am going link up to Virginia's View Challenge#15 - Ombre/Monochromatic

Such a pretty card, Cindy! I love the ombre effect and how you arranged all these sweet elements to create your pattern! Great idea to use the open book with your sentiment, too!
