Hi all!  Welcome to my little blog! The Just Us team has a new challenge for you this week!  The trend is to use vellum on your card or project.  You have it, I know you do! BUT, do you use it very often?  I know I don't! What are we afraid of, anyway? That we'll ruin it? So what, we can just cut another piece!  So, get it out and start crafting with us!  The DT over on the BLOG has some great inspiration for you! Don't miss it! 

My Favorite Things had a release this week. I was inspired by some of the new cards to get out this older set of MFT dies -LJD Scribble Flowers and get to work!  I started with a white card base.  Heavy white PTI card stock is my favorite. I made a top fold card.  Then there is my layer of vellum, cut just slightly smaller than the card front.  The card cover is a PTI die-diagonal stripes.  that is all adhered together with little dots of glue.

I cut my flowers, scribbles and leaves from the same white card stock. Putting the scribbles aside so I wouldn't get them inky I went to work with my Tim Holtz round sponge applicators.  I sponged on Pool Party and then Lost Lagoon in the center.  The leaves have a few different greens, I just couldn't seem to get what I wanted.  I used PTI Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado mostly.  I used my Clean Color Real brush Zig pen to free hand the veins-not perfect, and next time I think I'll try something else, but it worked for now.
Pretty simple card, really, but I like how it came out.
Thanks for visiting! I sure hope you'll visit our blog and then join in the challenge.  Chics of the week chosen in August have a chance to be out guest DT member in October!  You can enter up to 3 cards too!
gHave a great day and weekend!  Cheryl

Wow! Love this card! The vellum behind the striped die cut frame, those inked scribble flowers, the hand drawn veins on the leaves - brilliant!
