Prettie {use that vellum} Wednesday!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Two weeks ago, Prettie Girl Christi challenged the Prettie Girls to use vellum! Fun challenge!!

Now, I have TONS of, an entire, unopened pack, plus alot more. Now...can I FIND the vellum? Of course not! All I was able to find was literally a 1 inch square of vellum!!! What's a girl to do with a 1 inch square of vellum you ask? Punch it and create a vellum butterfly!!

On my card, I used a newly released set from Paper Pretties, Everyday Picnic! We have SO many vineyards here on Long Island,. so I will be using this set ALOT!

The picnic basked was stamped onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. I framed my image with Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities and added some piercing.

This DELISH paper is called Something New from the Everafter Collection from Cosmo Cricket (I cannot stop using this Cosmo Cricket paper!!), and it matches two of the new in colors, Soft Suede and Dusty Durango perfectly!

The sentiment, For You, is part of a sentiment from the Sweets For The Sweet Set from Paper Pretties. I finished off my card with some piercing and some Whisper White Organza Ribbon, and of course, my vellum butterfly which I layered over a Soft Suede butterfly!!

You can see how the other Pretties have incorporated vellum into their cards right here!!
