Vellum Galore

Hi, after discovering I have a load of vellum freebie papers from magazines, thought it was time they got used.  Found this beautiful butterfly sheet and of course had to use it for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge which is Butterflies or Bugs.  Its quite similar to the card below as they were both from the same magazine.


Materials used:  Stamp by Lost Coast Design, Clear Embossing Powder, 1 sheet of freebie vellum, sparkly ribbon (left over from Christmas) Stickles, Pearl Brad and Stars.  This time I used  flower punches to make the flower.  I hope you like it as know its not my normal style but fancied trying something different.

I would also like to enter this stamped card into Lets Ink It Up challenge 'Anything Goes'  http://letsinkitup.blogspot.com/

Said I would let you know how I got on at the hospital Thursday after seeing the specialist, yet again.......well no news am afraid except they want to do further tests.  To tell you the truth am totally fed up with it all, its been going on forever, just want to be cured or treated at least............OK moan over................am now putting a big smile on my face............

Hope you all have a great week and thank you for supporting and caring about me.  Hugs Annette x
