A Warm and Cozy Sunset

*sigh*  Oranges and yellows are so wonderfully warm!  It was 29 degrees when I woke up this morning.  Twenty-nine.  That's not warm.  Not even a little.  So, I decided to post this card in an effort to at least warm up visually!  HA!

I Miss You

Warm and Cozy.  Right?  Right.  Trust me on this one.  I masked off the arched area and inked in various shades using the Desert Heat Kaleidacolor ink pad from Tsukineko.  I love using these ink pads for this type of application because it takes all of the guess work out of finding perfect colors to blend!  I inked the stamp for the sun in various shades, as well.

Sunset Miss You (detail)

I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a black strip and folded it into a banner.  I inked the edges with white ink to really make it stand out.  This card is fairly simple, but I really love how pretty it turned out!

I am linking this up to the AEI♥U Challenge over on the Avery Elle blog!  

You can find the supplies I used for my card in the links below.

Have a Happy!
