Just Us Girls #305 - Trend Week

This time at Just Us Girls it's Trend Week.  Sue is our hostess and she has chosen the trend of Vellum.

Here's my card

Vellum is such a fun addition to a card.  Usually, I make a tag and add the sentiment on Vellum, but this time I stamped my focal image with Versa Mark and embossed it in black on a piece of Vellum.  I colored the backside of the Vellum with Distress Markers.

Please visit the Just Us Girls blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our GD, Karen, have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.

If you win Chic of the Week in any of our August challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of October.  Good luck!

The Recipe:
Power Poppy Countryside Bouquet Deluxe
GKD Dogwood & Butterfly (sentiment)
GKD Casual Friday patterned paper
Cuttlebug Dandelion EF
Distress Markers
Spellbinders Tags & Flags 
GKD Gold Cord

  3. This is beautiful, Sharyn. I love the coloring on vellum.

  4. This is a very soft and pleasing card. The vellum is so useful when trying to get this effect. I have never used the distressed markers on the back, will have to try that. I love the striped paper in the background, and the embossed layer that lets it peek out too.

  5. Beautiful! Sharyn you make some amazingly beautiful cards!

  6. Gorgeous use of vellum here. Your flowers are colored just beautifully, and I love how you have made a window of the embossed layer!! This is just beautiful, Sharyn!!

  7. Wow Sharyn this is really beautiful and so colourful. Great layout. Another fabulous card.

  8. I love your card. The vellum gives it such a softer look. I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. It would be nice if you would go with us next year to Stampaway.

  9. I love the look of the colored flowers on the vellum and layered over the striped background! This is gorgeous!
