When I saw the code word, my mind immediately thought of a Mexican in an ombre sombrero with the words 'Happy Birthday Hombre' below - that's how my sometimes odd mind works!  Anyway I decided I wouldn't go with that idea and made a Christmas card instead...
 
Ombre Christmas card using blended pink distress inks
 
I used Clearly Besotted's Birch Background to heat emboss on some watercolour card and then blended Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar distress inks over the top.  I cut out the trees using MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles and used the negative part to make a frame around the outside.
 
The word Noel was cut out using a Stampin' Up! die and again I used the inks to 'ombre' the word slightly and layered it up on some adhesive foam which I also die cut using the same word.

I still think the Mexican idea was a good but I loved how this one turned out and it means one less Christmas card to make!
