Use Vellum for our challenge at MAWTT this week

Good morning all
I'm here with my DT card for the challenge over at Moving Along With The Times
 this week our lovely Wendy has given us the challenge to 

Use Vellum or Parchment

I was a bit last minute with this card and had planned to use some printed vellum as a background with an image and make matching vellum flowers.  That changed very quickly when I couldn't find the pad of Vellum paper I had!! I hunted through everything I had and came across a couple of "lost" things that I had been looking for but no sign of the vellum : ( .  At first I felt a bit bad because I was going to let down Wendy and the team by not turning up this week but then I remembered I had some Anna Griffin pads of vellum quotes so decided to see what I could do with one of them.  I have to confess time was getting on by this time and I was a bit clueless as to what to do  - so this is what I came up with.  It might have worked a bit better if I'd added some extra flowers, leaves and general faf! - but to be honest I've gone off faffy cards of late and couldn't quite pull it together

I have to confess its not my favourite thing I ever made - but by this time it was this or nothing
 - so it was this!!!

The one thing I do like about it is the sentiment - very inspirational

close up of the sentiment

So sorry - but I don't really feel this is my best work - but its an idea I suppose
 - and at least I turned up!!

This is what I did...

Sentiment - Anna Griffin Sentiment pad from the Sierra Collection
Papers - Lili of the Valley - Bearly mine
die cut labels - labels 11 spellbinders
Die cut butterfly -Spellbinders
Butterfly punch - woodware
Organza and eyelash ribbons - Crafty ribbons
Pearls from my stash
Kraft card - MFT

If you call over at the MAWTT challenge blog you'll find some gorgeous projets made by my teamies - hopefully we have inspired you to join in our challenge this week - with your vellum or parchment

This is fab Judith. Vellum is so hard to use on a card, I very rarely
have the urge to use it. This is just perfect, love that quote.


Carole said...

You've used vellum so it meets the brief, I think you're being a little hard on yourself, it's fab.
Hope you find the pad!!!
