Parchment or Vellum at Moving Along With The Times

Sorry this post is late, blogger having a moment and not publishing!

I hope you are all well and staying safe in this awful weather we are having in the UK.  Will it EVER stop raining.  

We have a new challenge over at Moving Along With Times today and our Wendy is the hostess this week, her first time so pop over and leave some love!  She has selected:

"Parchment or Vellum"

I went into a complete panic and left it to the last minute before making my card as I just didn't know what to do!!  When I did start to plan the card I could only find a small piece of Christmas vellum so had to go with Christmas which I have NEVER done in February!  Anyway enough waffle:

I really haven't done this challenge much justice I am afraid.  I used the velum as background paper.  Its very pretty snowflake, sparkly vellum actually.  The topper is from LOTV called Snowy Town.  I have had these for AGES! but I think they are so pretty.  I have attached the vellum to the card with pearl brads from the Hobby House and I have added some ribbon from my stash and some glamour dust.  Quite an easy card which took so long!!

Please pop on over to the challenge blog for some more gorgeous inspiration and I hope you can join us this week!

Take care and I will see you again soon.

Love and Hugs


  1. Pami I love this one - I did as soon as I saw it. That's such a gorgeous image, and it just sits so pretty on the vellum. Like you I struggled with this challenge but I have to say, I love all the cards we made so it was worth the effort! Jx

  2. This is a lovely card Pam, gorgeous image and design. I would have panicked too, I hardly use vellum or not even sure if I have any!! Hope you are keeping well? Hugs, Claire x

  3. This is gorgeous Pami and you really have done it justice. The image is gorgeous and I love the effect of the vellum.
    I promised myself that I would make at least two Christmas cards a week so I am not in a panic in November. You are one ahead of me!!!
    Enjoy the rest of your week.
