Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Vellum

This week over at Bah! Humbug! we are working with vellum. I have quite a bit of vellum but often forget to use it, so, thank you ladies, for the great challenge this week.  For my card I used two types of vellum.  The first layer is speckled with gold glitter and I laid that on a shimmery vellum.  Then the two layers are mounted on a piece of gold metallic moire cardstock.  All of these pieces are punched with EK Success Alpine Trail border punch.  Behind this combo is a strip of gorgeous metallic ribbon laid on white shimmery cardstock that was embossed with the Cuttlebug 5 x 7 brocade folder.  The gold peel off sentiment finishes it all off. 

I love white and gold together, especially when there is a lot of shimmer and texture!  I hope you like this project and that you hop on over to Bah! Humbug! to see more beautiful projects and join in the fun.  Christmas is not far away!

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate you!
