TSG102 - Vivacious Vellum

This week’s challenge at the TSG blog is brought to us by this month’s Trendy, Marisa! It’s time to pull out that rarely used, but always elegant vellum. There are all sorts of techniques you use that will showcase the vellum stunningly, or you can simply stamp the vellum as use it as a focal panel…your choices are limitless! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

For my sample, I pulled out some of my old time favourites, Poppies and Spread Your Wings sets. I was also itchy to cut into some of my new Glitz Design papers...
I stamped the sentiment on a strip of vellum. This must be one of the easiest ways to incorporate it into a card, but it's certainly my favourite.
