Birthday Ombre

Goodness it feels like I haven't crafted in forever.  Finally recovering from my cold, work has been crazy as we're down 3 nurses and the kids have been on spring break.  Let me just say at the end of the day I have no energy!  This weekend starts off with my mom's 60th birthday, followed by Easter, then my daughter turns 7 towards the end of the week, and then my b-day is the day after!  Figured a birthday card was in order and used the next Pinspired Challenge that used a beautiful and sparkly ombre look!  I will also be entering this in the Ombre Challenge by Moxie Fab World

For the background used the birthday sentiment from Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You set and stamped in various blues from the Blue Breeze Kaleidoscope inkpad.  Then used Lawn Cuts for the letters from Quinn's ABCs, copic colored for a pink ombre effect and used stickles Rock Candy for that sparkle effect.  The cupcake is from LF's Bake Me A Cake and the yellow background paper is from LFs Pink Lemonade petite paper pack.  Added a few more rhinestones for more sparkle!

Here is the pinspiration
If you're feeling pinspired the challenge is open til April 4th.  Come play along!

Took a pic to try to capture the sparkle in the letters and cupcake...

Hoping to sneak more crafty time in this weekend before all the festivities!  Here's a quick pic of these fun Easter treat bags made for my daughter's performance choir...she colored and glued them all together herself!
