Embossed Vellum

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm joining in solidarity with Darnell using an embossing folder
to hopefully uplift a friend.

I found this piece of embossed vellum in my UFOs and thought it was time to
find it a home.

The frame was also a UFO and worked perfectly to hold the vellum down.

Then some cutting and coloring with alcohol markers was all it took to
finish this card.

Bonnie, your card is ever SO stunning! Something as simple as a piece of embossed vellum can just take a design up ten notches, can't it?
Your sweet bouquet has tricked my eyes into thinking it's Spring!

Your friend will smile upon receiving this card, Bonnie. It's so light and airy with the fresh colors and soft embossed vellum. Love the frame doing double duty finishing off the card while holding the vellum down in the process.
