July Blog Hop

Tonight's the July Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink! You can find the thread in the forums where everyone will post links to their creations with this month's challenge. . .to use vellum.


I chose to use vellum as an overlay for a black and white photo. My husband and I just celebrated our 8 year anniversary, so this card is for him. Maybe the pearl brads were a little too "un-masculine", but I tried to keep the rest of the card "un-frilly". I think he'll like it though! I can't wait to see everyone's vellum creations this month! Head on over to the Blog Hop and join in the fun. It starts at 8pm EST! See you later! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Out on a Limb Sentiments (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Red Riding Hood (SU), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Red Riding Hood, Basic Black (SU), vellum; Accessories- pearl brads (Darice), paper piercer, black pen
