Playing with Vellum


Good morning everybody and a really beautiful morning it is here.  Actually the last few days were supposed to be very wet but it did not happen (at least where I live) so hopefully it will remain dry for the next few days as Gerry and I are going over to Donegal until Thursday for a little break.   Anyway - my card today is the result of playing around with some vellum.  Every time I have made a card with vellum it has ended up in the bin as I was not happy with the results - but I was quite happy with this simple little card and even Gerry liked it.  All I have used is the Fleur de Lis squares from Spellbinders and one of their classic edges along with a little Marianne die which was just part of a set and of course finished off with a few pearls from Wild Orchid.  I don't suppose you could call it clean and simple but it's not too far off.  Thank you for taking a look and have a lovely day.

A beautiful card Marie-Louise so soft and gentle. Like you my vellum cards usually end up in the bin.

The Hewbrew Slaves chorus I love but think it to be so sad.
