Vellum and a Posey

The more I work with vellum, the better I like it.  At Joan's Gardens this week she has challenged us to create a card using polka dots, vellum and an oval.

I started with a green polka dot background and used a sentiment from this week's Word Art Wednesday free scripture; the die for the oval is from Spellbinders.  Also from Spellbinders is the flower, which is three layers of petals, each layer a little smaller than the one just beneath it, and the leaves.  Each layer of the flower is dabbed with pink ink, the most intense color being in the middle of each flower layer.  A little yellow flower brad is in the center.  The oval frame is also dabbed with a bit of pink ink around the edges, and green blingies were added.  The oval is also elevated with dimensional stickies and so is the flower.  The leaves I left the original color, but because they are against the green background, they appear to be green, as well.

Here is the card:


So glad Joan and Selma challenged us to work with vellum this week.  It has been a delightful learning experience.

God's highest and best to you today and always.

Love,

Ginny
