Such a Happy Day!

This is my business partner and BFF's birthday!!



I created this card after seeing Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on "Vellum Overlay Cards".  I shamelessly CASED every little detail Jennifer used on her card : ) You can see her video HERE.



I used Papertrey Ink's Linen Vellum cs and it held up so nicely! when I heat embossed it but it seems a bit to opaque - I will use a more transparent vellum next time.

It was a bit tricky getting a picture of this card because of the card base being vellum but you can get the idea : ) especially if you hop over to see Jennifer's (much prettier) cards.



I will be entering my card in the Just Us Girls challenge this week where they are calling for Vellum! : ) as well as Simon Says Wednesday: Flowers!




Happiest of Birthday's Bella! I love you!! : ) 

Thank you for stopping by friends! and if you have time to leave a comment please wish Diane (nick name Bella) a Happy day with me! : )

Patti

Supplies:
Flower and sentiment from "Beautiful Day" by Altenew
Vellum from Papertrey Ink
Detail White EP by Ranger
Pearls and rhinestones from my stash

BEAUTIFULLY colored on the inside! I find the PTI linen vellum to be too opaque to be called vellum. It works for clouds and other white needs, but not for transparent.
