You've Got This, Finally!


This started out OK.

But wait!

If I add a sentiment at the bottom I can take it over to


so.....


Oh, no!

The vellum is curled and won't straighten no matter what I do!

But then......


I remembered that frame left over from a die cut.

Now I like it!

and since I used a snippet, I can go to

and since I used my SU Markers, I'm taking this to
MAKE YOUR MARK
(second entry)


Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you enjoy!

Isn't it funny how beautiful cards come from little accidents. It was beautiful before too.

JosieD said...

Bu-ti-ful card, as always. Love how you fixed the curled vellum! Seems there's not a boo boo or glitch you can't fix...now that's being creative.

Just stunning! I love the effect of the flower on the vellum and adding the frame to cover the curled vellum was a brilliant idea. xx

Oh Bonnie, I thought I was the only one who saves the left over frames from die cuts!! I love, love the progression of your gorgeous card, simply amazing.
Thank you so much for sharing.

You clever crafty minx, you! LOVE this beautiful flower stem. Which I'm not certain if it's your gorgeous w/c over embossing, or you did an inlay. But it's just gorgeous. And on vellum, too, which intimidates me. Loved the frame solution, and it added some terrific dimension. Oh, that color shading...just stunning. Liking the watermelon color so much. TFS & Hugs.

Love the transformation of this gorgeous card Bonnie! I enjoyed see this one change :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Vellum does its own thing, that is for sure. I love how you tamed the curl! This is a gorgeous card. I bought a card making kit that included stamps... which was this set. I really like it. It looks really good on vellum. Thanks for showing it off.

Colleen Dietrich said...

I actually like each version/step of this process! Each frame had me oohing and aahing. Clever fixes, Bonnie!

Bobby said...

That darn curling vellum! You sure showed it, Bonnie. I love the card with the frame and the flower is absolutely gorgeous.
