I've set a goal for myself to try to make a new card at each show we do, as Sundays are usually not quite as busy, and it is the only time I have a workspace and my craft supplies accessible. I created this card in Lawrenceville, Georgia. It is sweet and simple (that's my style), I only wish I would've had some of that 1/16" shimmery mauve cording (that I know is sitting back home in my craft room) to weave around the frame.
I love sparkle so I colored the vellum on the front using Stardust Gelly Roll Pens (Rose and Pink for the flowers, Green and Lime for the Leaves) and blended the colors with a Dove Blender Pen. For the darker centers of the roses, I put some Fuschia Fizz Shades™ Dye Ink on the back side of the vellum using my Dove Blender.
I cut the vellum layer with Cheery Lynn Designs XM7 Oval Little Stackers Dies that I adhered to the dark A2 card with V2 Vellum Adhesive Spray. I cut DL136 Japanese Garden Lace Oval (Cheery Lynn Designs) from cream CS and adhered over the vellum layer using Krylon All Purpose Spray Adhesive which works like magic when adhering the delicate, open lacy of Cheery Lynn's dies.
The corners are adorned with two different sizes of pearls from the Cream & Pearls Embellishment Collection.
