The Kraft Journal Challenge #16

      Wow, can you believe it's almost May already.  This year is just zipping by!  Our theme this week at The Kraft Journal is "May Day".  I haven't worked with vellum for quite a while so I decided I'd break some out for this card. 
     The card base and two mats are created using Kraft Outlet's Brown Kraft  and Buff Ivory Coverweight cardstocks.  There's some pretty blue Bazzill thrown in there too.
     For the flowers I inked up my stamp with some Versamark and then added some white embossing powder to really make the image pop on the Translucent Vellum.  It looks so delicate and pretty.
     There's a little 7 Gypsies Venice Gaffer Tape and Victoria Seam Binding.  The sentiment was printed out on more of the vellum and then covered with clear embossing powder to keep the ink from smearing.  I tied a little bow with some green Baker's Twine around the Seam Binding.
     I love the cream, kraft and blue color combination and how that white embossing powder looks on the vellum.  Hope you like it too.
     Get your projects for this "May Day" challenge linked up by 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday.
     Happy Monday!
