Here's another card for the vellum challenge. This one also has some of my paper embroidery done on Decorative Labels One. It's another die that already has the holes with the die cutting, so it's sort of taking the easy route. The butterfly is embossed with an ep that looks like the turquoise stone, it has flecks of copper in it also.
I love working with vellum, especially the colored vellums

WOW! Jennifer, I didn't go back any further when I saw your first card (still playing catch up) and what a BIG mistake on my part. This is GORGEOUS!!! I am such a huge fan of your paper embroidery and there is no such thing as an easy route for this in my book! It looks FABULOUS with that die cut!!! Also, your butterfly is so beautiful!!! The embossing just looks amazing, I only wish I could see it close up too! LOVE every inch!!! This is into my favorites!!!

I don't think I've ever noticed those dies before! But reading your description, it occurs to me that at least one of the floral ovals has pierced holes in it. Not that I could hope to come near the wonderful look you achieve. Another beautiful vellum butterfly too :D.

Jennifer, your needle work is stunning! And have I ever told you how much I love cards that are done with soft grey? (she smiles). I can certainly see why this card was a favorite this week. It's double G gorgeous!
