Vellum for a Birthday

Click HERE for my DeNami Blog Hop Post.

I always look forward to the Monday PTI videos & this week's card by Ashley totally appealed to me. Off I went to see what small images I could find in my PTI sets to use for a randomly stamped background.  Turns out there are dots of various sizes in several of my sets, but I decided to use 3 different images to make my background. The 3 little dots are from Harvest Berries & all the other images are from Quilled Elegance.  I have a few PTI inks & chose Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist & Simply Chartreuse to stamp on white cardstock.  It's been a long time since I made a card with an entire top panel of vellum--don't know why as I love that look, especially with white embossing.  I ran it through my Xyron machine & attached it to the background.  Fortunately I have one card of My Mind's Eye assorted buttons with one the right size & color. It doesn't always happen, but this time my finished card is just what I wanted--yah! Since I used 3 embellishments (floss, button, pearls) this is my entry for Passion for Papertrey. I'm also adding it to the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  Hope you had a great weekend.  Thanks for taking time to stop by.
