Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge

Hello!  It is finally Spring here in Ohio, yay!!!  It is going to be 68 today, woot woot!  Today I'm sharing a soft card that I've created for the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge.  This time they are mixing it up with Taylored Expressions, and I decided to create a Sympathy Card.  I never like making Sympathy cards as I'm sure we all can agree, but they are good to have on hand.  I mixed the Wild Garden Designer Dies and Tailored Expressions Care and Comfort Set...

I diecut all of the florals from vellum for a soft elegant touch, and since I was using a colored background I decided to continue with the softer side of things and embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder.  The sequins have two jobs: 1. They add interest and keep the card moving, 2. They are a great distraction and way to hide where you adhere the vellum to the paper.

I am also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: April Showers Bring May Flowers

That's all from me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!!

Such a pretty card and very clever to hide the adhesive under the vellum with sequins. Great job! Thanks for entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Cathie
