faded hello

Hey everyone!! Back again with another card I created for the Online Card Class!! Having a fun time playing around with new ideas!!!

So for this card I decided to do the faded look. 

For the background I had to yet again my my own using a border stamp from Fresh Squeezed stamp. I heat embossed it in clear then pulled the 3 shades of grey from Simon Says stamp and worked my way up the card darkest to lightest. After that was done I adhered the panel to black card stock. I decided due to the monochromatic background I needed a pop of colour, waffled over a few and went with this coral. I then punched out the flower shape and circle as well as the hello die. Wanted to give the hello a pop so I inked it over with grey then added some sparkle embossing powder over it. After the card was put together thought it still needed a little something so out came the clear wink of stella pen for some added sparkle!!

So Thats my card for today!! Thanks so  much for stopping by!
