TSG Vivacious Vellum Challenge
There She Goes blog is hosted by none other than yours truly :) It will be a busy week as I post a challenge, tutorial and dollar store find this week but I'm up for it :)
My challenge is to use vellum on your card. Remember when vellum was "the" thing to use on your card?! I loved it then and actually still love the soft feel it gives a card, but seldom remember to reach for it, thus my challenge.
I based my card on this week's Splitcoast Stampers sketch and used one of my favorite There She Goes sets, Sweet Pea. I simply adore sweet peas - their colours, shape, smell, everything about them. My mom plants them in her garden every year and always has a wonderful little bouquet in a vase on her counter, so they hold many fond memories too.
Now that I looked at the picture of my card I realized I am on a bit of a scored background bender...sorry about that! Looks like I have done it on my past three cards! Well, at least it isn't swiss dots, right?! LOL! I anchored my vellum sentiment with black half pearls and put the glue dots under them to secure it and then added a layered, vellum butterfly, masking the glue with the half pearls.
Would love it if you joined us in the challenge this week. Simply create a card and then link it to the post on the There She Goes blog. The winner of the challenge receives a $5 gift certificate to the There She Goes web store :) You could also find your card featured in the Trendsetting Spotlight on Thursday. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :) If you are uploading to a public gallery, simply use the keyword TSG102.
Have a fabulous day :)
