Vellum - Digital Tuesday Challenge #59

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge!

Our challenge this week, chosen by Michelle is

Vellum.

You don't have to print your digi on vellum, as long as you use it somewhere on your creation is fine with us. I hope you'll play along. If you are like me you have some vellum somewhere in your stash but haven't used it in - like forever! Glad I had the chance to dig it out!

And here's my card. My vellum is the embossed circle behind the image, and I also stamped the sentiment on vellum.


My card uses the image "Mushroom Lane - butterfly" from Digital Stamp Oasis. It's one of my favorites. I don't know why, but I have really been using many images with mushrooms recently. I just love mushroom images I suppose.

Papers are from stampin up and K&company. I adhered the image to a vellum circle that I embossed using a cuttlebug folder. The sentiment was also stamped on a piece of vellumd and attached to the card front. I planned on adding some dew drops to hide the glue dots, but forgot to do that before I took the picture. I embellished with some red ribbon, prima flower and flourish, and of course I had so add some stickles too. Oh, and I decided the card needed some zigzag stitches, so I got out my janome mini sewing machine.

My card also fits the ABC challenge (theme: unused stash), La-La Land (theme: anything goes), Crafty Ann's Challenge blog (theme: anything goes also), Cute Card Thursday (theme: for someone special).

I hope you like the card. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's work, it's just gorgeous! Hope you can play along this week for a chance to win 3 digis from the Digital Stamp Oasis.
