For the layout I used the sketch over at The Challenge. For the smaller details on the card I was inspired by the current Addicted to CAS codeword which is Vellum and by CAS on Sunday where the theme is Emboss it. I used dry embossing for the blue panel in the background, and heat embossing for the sentiment on the vellum. Last but not least I'm linking up at Craft Hoarders Anonymous where the challenge is to use at least three layers. I seem to have quite a few more with the background, blue embossed panel, blue matting, peacock feather paper and finally the vellum. This was another card where I used only stash stuff, starting with the long unused paper, and old stamp set for the sentiment, and scraps of vellum and dark blue cardstock for the matting and embossed background. It feels so good to find some use for those leftover scrap pieces of cardstock, doesn't it!
