Make it Monday again & Papertrey Posse February Challenge!

The card I have to share today is a 2-for-1 in terms of challenges!


This is another PTI Make it Monday entry for the vellum sentiment strip challenge. I am loving this method of adding the sentiment! Here, I used Scor-tape both to hold the vellum in place (it is carefully applied to stick to the card front and "half overlap" the vellum strip) and also to adhere glitter. Yes, GLITTER! As someone who has always been a little bit afraid of glitter ;) I thought it would be a nice touch here to set off the vellum, and I really love how it turned out!

This card is also my Papertrey Posse February Challenge card for our Parade of Blogs over at the Posse blog! Maggie issued a challenge this month to create a card (or project) that is all about your favorite things--images, colors, materials, etc. So aside from the fact that vellum sentiment strips are one of my new favorites :) I used my favorite Year of Flowers image on the card - the Lily of the Valley. I also used one of my favorite techniques, coloring with Copic markers. I've only "discovered" Copics in the past few months, since I have gotten more into cardmaking, but I just love love LOVE the beautiful, unique look that can be achieved with them!

Thanks for looking!

So so pretty. The glittlery border is just perfect. I don't have this set but feel like you've done such a great job with it and I'm bit inspired, so maybe... I adore the coloring and the combination of colors as well.

Can't believe you only have been using your copics a few months. The shading on the flowers is really good. I love that vellum strip. I think we all will be using lots more vellum after the little video tutorial from Nichole this week. Very pretty card, Debbie.
