Papertreyink July Blog-Hop

So this months theme is to use vellum.  Can I just say, vellum and I battled it out today, things were not going well LOL.  So finally I made this.  The card base is sweet blush, layered with the vintage cream.  On top of the vintage cream card stock I put polka-dotted vellum from the Paper Company.  The smaller rectangle, I layered it the same as the base, but I stamped on the plain vellum using Spiral Bouquet.  I used sweet blush & berry sorbet ink.  The "Enjoy" sentiment is stamped in Stazon ink.  The ribbon is sweet blush  also from PTI.  You can't see them but I attached the vellum to the card stock with brads {I don't like adhesive to show}  I know this is super simple, but it took so long to make, but I like it.  
thanks for stopping by~

*my first few cards were horrible, the vellum and I had a battle & it was winning for a while, its so easy to mess up using this stuff, so I settled on the less is more philosophy*

Very pretty card & great bow. I wish I could tye a bow like that! For the adhesive on vellum I agree with you, but recently I have tried Glue Dots Vellum sheets & let me tell ya it makes all the difference in the world. You cannot see it.
