Hello lovely ladies and welcome to a brand new challenge over at ATCAS, we have a fantastic code word for you this time round and I should know cos I chose it !!!!!
Yes I’m your hostess for the next fortnight but sorry no drinks trolley this time round due to my immobility but I have created a little bar in the corner , so if you would like to file past in an orderly fashion and help yourselves I would be very grateful. Trying to push a drinks trolley whilst on crutches is a recipe for disaster.
I love vellum and use it in many of my cards especially for envelopes,however this time round I made the envelope and forgot to photograph it and now its too dark .
Now here’s a first for me I actually like a card I made, yep no whingeing or complaining from me I love it and it looks so much better in real life, but where is the vellum you may ask well……
I used my Cameo to cut this gorgeous image it took several goes as this really is a very detailed image it required several passes and a new blade but I got there in the end. I tore up some vellum and laid it at angles behind the image and added two weeny bits of green vellum behind the leaves. I created a frame with the cameo, some foam and a computer generated sentiment and there you have it. Unfortunately the Vellum is not showing up so well in the photo but believe you me it’s there and it looks fabulous !!!! Did I just say fabulous, wow I may need to go and lie down.
Our guest designer the fabulous Hannelie is still with us and she along with the rest of the amazing DT have come up with some outstanding cards , so why not pop on over to ATCAS and feast your eyes and maybe join in.
We are once again sponsored by Scribbles Designs who are offering three digs to the winner

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend
Hello, it’s me, one of the lovely ladies! I have to agree, your card is bootiful and I love the little pop of lime. Hope you’re not whacking too many with those crutches! Take care. Xx
This is fabulous Marie. What a creative way to use vellum and the touch of green is so inspired. Get my order of G&T ready-2 cubes of ice and a slice of lemon…hurry up!!
Stunning card Marie no wonder you are over the moon with it! Love that cameo die cut so delicate and the touch of green is inspired. G&T for me please on the rocks with some thinly sliced cucumber:-)
Your card is beautiful!
I can see the vellum! Great idea to layer it behind your image. It looks great! That’s such a beautiful and intricate image too. The little bit of green behind the leaves is a really nice pop of color.
I love your card! I love the texture that your torn vellum adds as background and the images that you cut are so elegant and intricate. Lovely lay out and perfect sentiment too!
Absolutely fabulous creation Marie. The vellum looks gorgeous with it’s torn edges behind and on the leaves. Your gorgeous cut creation sits perfectly in the frame. Crutches or not you’d have that hostess trolley drunk dry before any of your passengers got a sniff!!,
Love the tiny window with the torn bg vellum – looks fabulous. Great word!
You clever little Monkey and so glad I am not on the DT for this challenge, one of my nightmare products, Fabulous creation and colours and what a great and true sentiment.
Hope you are improving and would love to come and visit for the free bar, especially fond of dry white wine and Ouzo and lemonade.
Love Kath xxx
Such a cool way to use vellum 🙂 love the window u created and yes I am up for the drinks, I would love red wine 😉
Oh Marie this is so beautiful – I clicked on your photo and got a close up to see how you did the bits of vellum behind the cut image – and that green for the leaves is perfect! Hope you are feeling better!
WOW – what a fabulous card Marie – the delicate flowers look amazing on the vellum background. LOVE it!
Hope you are feeling much better now Marie. Have a happy day – hugs, Sylvia xxx
This crutches thing has got you going into overdrive with your designs, I LOVE this too, how you get your ideas is something else, OR is it the G&T? While your at it, no excuse with the crutches whisky and lemonade for me please! Get a move on girl!
A great way to use the vellum. it’s a beautiful card.
LOVE your design Marie. Beautiful blooms cut from the Cameo … they do look very delicate and I’m sure it took some time to get them so perfectly cut. Love the neutral colours of your card with the little bits of bright green — so pretty. Love the ripped and layered vellum for your backdrop … adds lots of texture. Loll xx
You should like this card, it’s pure elegance, I really like this card too! Pinned!
What an amazing focal image (worth the retries) and I just love that sentiment. Hope you are healing well.

This is beautiful, love everything about it, the stencil, the sentiment and particularly the touches of green. Very classy indeed x
Oh my I am so loving this card! I can see the vellum and it looks amazing! Love the touch of green vellum under the leaves, and speaking of leaves, I am loving that whole image you cut on your Cameo, so pretty. You sentiment is just perfect too. You so rocked this challenge! Hugs, Brenda
