Stamplorations CAS January Challenge!!

Today marks the first Stamplorations CAS challenge!!!  Are you as excited as I am?  This month is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Silver.

I immediately thought of pink and gray together.  I love that combo so so much.  I used one of the Patchwork Frenzy Graphic Squares, the first I'm using of my new Stamplorations stash, overlapping as I stamped to create an ombre effect with various Distress Inks.  The stamp was so easy to align by eye!  I stamped the Dogwood sentiment in gray in keeping with the overall soft look.  I added a sprinkling of hearts on top of the embossed panel which is inlaid with a gray border.  I 100% heart this!

The Details:  Stamplorations Patchwork Frenzy Graphic Squares and Dogwood sentiment, Distress Ink Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, and Festive Berries, Hero Arts Soft Graphite, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Recollections 110lb white cardstock, Simon Says stitched rectangle and square dies, Bazzill Fig Swirl cardstock

I'm entering this in Mod Squad Ombre and Fab N Funky 268 Something New, Shopping Our Stash 233 Monochromatic or Pink
