Ombre Challenge

Using Meljen's Digital Sweet Heart Lollipop I created this card for our February Ombre Challenge:

The one video I watched use a brayer to apply the ombre colors, and since I could not locate my brayer, I used sponges to apply the colors - Blush Pink and Cranberry from Close to My Heart (probably since retired as I had my ink pads for a few years).  

I placed a scalloped-edge piece about where the colors changed and placed a ribbon from Stampin! Up collection and created a quick bow.  The flowers was included in February's Card Kit which I placed in the corner.  The hearts from another project and the bigger heart I layer with another heart and centered a bead.

The Sweet Heart Lollipop I colored the Lollipop stick with Red from my collection of Stampin! Up ink markers.  And used pinks from same collection of markers.  The Lollipop itself I used the Pink from Wink of Stella collection.
