You Color My World

The theme this week at The CSI Project is Ombre... I confess, I had no idea what Ombre was and had to Google it... thank heavens for Google!  I confess... I just don't get the Ombre hairstyle, it just looks like you are behind on your highlights! but Ombre crafts?!?!  There are a lot of cute ideas out there.  Because I am mostly a paper crafter, I got to work at my card table and came up with two cute cards! I'm sharing one today and one tomorrow and linking them both up to The CSI Ombre Challenge!

Just your basic card... but so cheery with color.  I pulled out my hexagon punch and went to town with white, pale pink, bright pink, red, and dark red...  I did a lot of playing around on the background before I found a design I liked.

I was just struggling with what the sentiment should be... thank you, birthday, thinking of you, get well soon... I just didn't like anything I had! Then I came up with "You Color My World." When I discovered that I had enough different ink pads to make words Ombre, too, I got really excited!  I just love the way it came together!

I sponged the edges of the white shapes with light pink so they would be easier to see on the white card.

I love the way this card turned out and might have to check my stash of paper to see if I can create it with other colors, too!  I also love to make coordinating envelopes and something matching inside the card... any ideas?!?!

And handmade cards are great for framing... double gift!!

I hope you like it. I would love to hear your comments, compliments, constructive criticism... And if you really love them, check out my card shop and order one!



  1. Super cute!

    I judged the challenge last week and picked your cute crossword card. I had to come back to visit you because I liked your project so much. This week's card is just as cute. Good luck!

    I hope you'll stop in to visit me, too.

  2. I see that I was right, you are in the top ten this week, too, at CSI. Congratulations.


I would love to reply to your comments, but I can't unless you have an email available in your profile!
