I also wanted to share I card I overlooked from last month's release of the STV kit, Days of Summer.

For my card I used the new designer papers called Watercolor Garden. I put a piece of vellum over it, to mute it a bit. And on the vellum I stamped and heat embossed some white butterflies. I painted the metal ornate piece with some gesso, to tone down the metal a bit too...and did a bit of sponging on it to match the colors of the papers and cardstock I used. I also sanded over the metal pieces to give them even more of an aged look. I love how this turned out, cant believe I overlooked it, ha!

Ok, that's all for now! Hope to see you at the party!

Oh, I sure love that card you made with the vellum and the StampTV kit. It seems vellum is making a comeback as I am seeing so many using it again. Guess I should dig out my supply and try using more of my stash too.
