That's What Friends Are For!!

I was definitely a little skeptical with this week's challenge over at Shopping our Stash (SOS).  It's Challenge #11 and we called it "Vellum, Violet & Violins" which according to our fearless leader means:

"uncover your vellum paper, embelishments, or use the color violet or a floral image, or use something music related- think music notes, sheet music backgrounds, song lyrics, etc"

Being as I haven't really used vellum much in the past I was a little freaked out by it.  I originally wanted to emboss it but only had one piece and didn't want to mess it up LOL!  I went with printing part of the song lyrics to Dionne Warwicks "That's what friends are for" song on vellum.

I did find out that apparently you need a special adhesive to use with vellum.  DEFINITELY noted for future vellum projects!!  I used some paper that I had on hand from My Mind's Eye and added some of my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & Recollections and some punched out butterflies spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  Definitely a simple card but just perfect for a good friend :)

I hope you will play along with us this week.  REMEMBER.....you don't have to use all three options you can just pick one & play along if you like.  It's that easy!

How brave you were! Yeah, the attaching part is tough. That's why we have embellishments to hide the adhesive, or to stand is as attachers. :):) Looks great!
