Vellum Flowers!!

I have been really busy today with lots of projects that I need to finish so I thought I would show you one of the cards I made for the Hero Arts Hostess blog spot.  I made four cards and my family chose this one which was featured when my Hostess spot was announced.  This pink card was one of the rejects.  I love how the flower turned out, I found this piece of patterned vellum in my scrap paper box and after stamping and embossing twice in white with the large bloom stamp I then cut out the flowers and shaped the petals.
The background is made by stamping the Old Letter Writing stamp and the Paper Art stamp with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then distressing lightly all over the paper.
Must get back to my other projects now.  Have a great weekend.

So fun that you let your family choose which card to post the day of your big announcement. I loved the one they chose and this one is beautiful too! Gorgeous colors and your flowers look beautiful on the patterned vellum!
