Vellum all the way
I started out with Sketch Saturday's current sketch. I cut a piece of white vellum, embossed it with the Swiss dots folder, and cut an oval out of it. The vellum layer is mounted on a pale gray layer. Instead of using the oval for an image, I filled it with a die-cut vellum flower spray and a diecut butterfly, with embossed green vellum layered on white cardstock. The butterfly die is from Simon Says Stamp (Chrissy butterfly) and the flower spray is from Memory Box.
Along the side I put torn vellum strip in pink, green and white, layered on top of each other. The sentiment is white embossed on another torn bit of vellum.
White brads in all four corners help hold the vellum in place, because I still haven't found a really good vellum adhesive. (The mini gems cover glue dots.)
This card meets the requirements for several challenges:
Sketch Saturday -- #360
Catch the Bug -- In the Garden
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- use an SSS exclusive product
Butterfly Challenges #30 -- jagged edges
Crafting for all seasons -- birthday with four of something (brads)
Word Art Wednesday #183 -- anything goes
Clear it out -- green stash (the vellum)
