Vellum Challenge at Flourishes

This week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes was to do a project with vellum. That's definitely something I don't use much of, so this was a good challenge for me. I used my Labels 2 Nestability for my vellum paper and my image paper. My cake is an image from Flourishes "Birthday Celebrations" and I circle-masked it and stamped my basket-weave stamp that we were given at the Flourishes SD Week-end. On the top of the vellum I stamped the sentiment. The DP is from Basic Grey's Two Scoops and the edges are punched with my MS punch. It all sits on top of black CS. My ribbon is from PTI and the corners have half-pearls in graduated sizes. I'm really liking this set and I know I'll be using it a lot. Thanks for stopping by. Yesterday I was in bed all day with the flu so I'm so thankful that was short-lived. I still haven't done my HM post and I've been honored with more awards that I want to post and share, so I'll be back as soon as I can with more. Have a lovely Friday. It's Friday....Yay!
