Vellum or Parchment

Today's Wendy's first time hosting a challenge over at Moving Along With The Times, and she has chosen the theme of

Vellum or Parchment

Both mediums I don't tend to use, but Vellum is something I've bought in the past...then shoved in a drawer!


 So it was a vellum sheet, from a pad I bought in the January sales that I coupled to a gorgeous Mo Manning image.  Simple gold & white colour scheme and my 5th Christmas card of the year!

Challenges;
Drunken Stampers - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Diecuts or Punches - Die cut square
Crimbo Crackers - Christmas happiness - well a choir is normally happy isn't it?
Papertake - Anything Goes

The vellum gives a lovely delicate feel Judith and the gold mat really draws the eye.

I know full well I am on Janice's blog so goodness only knows why I got your name wrong, so sorry (sitting waiting for this weeks treatment so my mind is not too focused I guess).

Perfect vellum to go with that image Janice and the gold frame is a beaut!! Think I've got some vellum lurking, should get it out and come and play!! xx

This challenge has pushed a lot into using vellum that they've had hidden away. You've made a beautiful card with it and now I might have to dig mine out! lol Hazel L. x

Your card is just lovely Janice - I've had to dig out the vellum that I've had tucked away in a drawer for years as well!!!
