I'm so glad that our challenge this week is a Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge! I had an idea for a card which will be perfect for this challenge.
I haven't used any of the gorgeous designer vellum panels from the Graceful Glass Suite for months. When I came across this panel with those beautiful irises, I knew I had to use it for a card. And why not add the butterflies and sentiment from the Painted Glass stamp set as well, since they can so easily be cut out with the matching Stained Glass Thinlits dies.
This was a perfect opportunity to use the lovely new colour, Highland Heather. Not only did I use the cardstock for the mattes, but I also used the colour in my new Stampin' Blends for the vellum and in my Stampin' Markers for the butterfly. And lest I forget, I dragged a piece of the dainty Polka Dot Tulle ribbon across my stamp pad to change it from white to Highland Heather as well.
Since I didn't want the leave the white area beside the vellum panel plain, I decided to use the Hexagon embossing folder for only half that piece of Whisper White. It makes a perfect spot for those butterflies to land, doesn't it?
I hope you'll be joining us by linking up your awesome creations before Monday, September 10th at 5 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time. To see the wonderful creations by our Watercooler Artists, check out our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge blog.
