This is my card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here's the sketch:
I started by masking off a portion of the white panel and sponging it with 3 blue distress inks. I stamped the Simon Says Stamp birthday in navy blue to continue the ombre effect. I used two Papertrey dies (anyone have any good advice for getting those suckers out of the die once they're cut?) and finished with a pop of yellowy-orange, using a Doodlebug sparkly enamel dot.
