First ombre background card!

After I saw the YouTube video from Jennifer McGuire about how to make easy ombre background cards, I had to try it immediately and I LOVE the outcome. This is the first card I made that evening. The only thing that Jennifer didn't say in her video was, that it takes quite long to finish one card.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Squeezed Lemonade. The die cut is from "The Greeting Farm Die Cut - Hello & Smile" set.

I enter this card in the following challenges:
