Now on with the projects.

This month it's all about the see through stuff...vellum and acetate.
I decided to make a wedding card  for this hop and for a friend that just got married last Saturday. I didn't attend the wedding, but she was a Sunday School teacher with me so I wanted to make her a card. Anyway, on with the card! :) The card base is Recollections A2 card. The paper is Close to My Heart My Reflections La Vie En Rose Collection and is double sided so I used a piece of the back for the trim down the middle. The stamps- Congratulations, kissing birds, and on your wedding-  are Close To My Heart  I Do Occasions stamp set and I used VersaFine Onyx Black Pigment Ink to stamp them. I'm on a roll with Close To My Heart on this card! :) The vellum is from Best Occasions Mixed Media Pack that I totally forgot about and glad I found it! The pearl bling is a RAK from my friend, Lisa. TFL!

Great card. Muting the card with the vellum is an interesting look. Thanks for sharing.

One of the things I learned in an online class, Clear & Shear, was using vellum to mute the pattern. Great job. Cute little love bird bride & groom, too. So happy you're part of our hop...looking forward to hopping with you again next month.

Very sweet. I'm sure your friend will love it. I don't "do" weddings (very well, anyway)... but I do love wedding cards and do-dads. Awesome hopping with you!
