Daring Cardmakers - Vellum

 Hello everyone.

After a very long break from the Daring Cardmakers I am back to share this weeks challenge, which is one that I am hosting.

So for this weeks challenge I would love to see some vellum on your cards, it can be a little or a lot.  I don't use vellum very often so this was a good challenge for me.

I decided to use the gorgeous Celebrate Sunflowers stamp and die bundle.  I cut the top layer of the sunflower from vellum along with some of the foliage.  I then inked up the layer underneath to allow a little of the yellow to show through.

I also stamped the sunflower to create a lovely simple background to the card and added a sentiment.  I finished the card with a few of the Flower For Every Season gems.

I really do love the look of this card and stepped out of my comfort zone to use the vellum.  I am now feeling inspired to use vellum a little bit more in my creations.

Please stop by the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.
