Clearly a Time for Celebration

I created this card for the CASual Friday challenge to use vellum (cfc57). The layout is from a 2Peas’ Saturday Card Sketch challenge (June 16).

Of course, now I can’t find it 🙁 but I remember seeing a card done a while back using a Hero Arts(?) flower that was white embossed on vellum and I thought the Mixed Bunch Stampin’Up set would be a great substitute (and hey, I wouldn’t have to cut it out since there is a coordinating punch – bonus!).

Since I was doing vellum flowers, I knew my card base needed to be on the dark side (mwuahahaha). Once I chose the blue, I picked my accent color. The rest is just following the sketch and keeping to StampinUp supplies (look ma – another SUO card 🙂 ).

Thanks for taking a peek!
