Cuttlebug Be Inspired 26

Good morning and welcome to this week's Cuttlebug Be Inspired Challenge. Today we are adding vellum to our cards or projects.

Vellum is great for embossing and adds a softness which is why I chose to do an Easter card for mine. When I think of Easter I think of soft pastel colors. Here is my card.

The image is Miracle Of Spring (retired) from Stampin Up. I embossed Birds & Swirls on a piece of polka dotted vellum and then sponged Eggplant on it. The scalloped border and sentiment oval were cut using my Cricut. I colored the images with Copics and added Glossy Accents. In retrospect, I think I should have added some nice corner details.

Be sure to pop over to the Cuttlebug Challenges site and check out what the team has in store for you.

We would love for you to do the challenge too! Be sure to post a link to your creation on Mr Linky. You can find him on the Cuttlebug Challenge site.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
