Create a _You're Marvelous_ card using the Marvelous Nature Stamp Set and Fern 3D Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan
Lost Lagoon, one of my favorite returning colors, works wonderfully with the Marvelous Nature Stamp Set.
I created an ombre effect by adding classic ink directly to the stamp with Blending Brushes.  I started with Petal Pink, added Calypso Coral to the center and ended with Lost Lagoon.
