The color is actually in a gradient from light to dark on the paper...just gorgeous!
The die is a Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things, called Fancy flourish. The tips of the swirls are accented with pearls from Zva. And the ribbon is a luscious wide silk-look ribbon from May Arts.
Hope you enjoy this simple, but elegant card. Have a great week and I'll have more for you next Friday.
