I'm not quite sure if the Ombre style (which is achieved by graduating color from light to dark) is also considered color blocking? I decided to take a chance anyway and also enter my card in the CAS-ual Friday challenge, which is 'blocks of color'.
The stems are stitched with embroidery floss, individual strips of paper adhered together to create the ombre effect, shapes are die cut and popped up on dimensionals. Sentiment is stamped with Momento Ink.
