Manhattan Vellum

Today's card is for two challenges. One at Stamping 411 where they have a sketch challenge and are introducing a new operator, Kerin Sylvester, CONGRATULATIONS Kerin!, and the other is for Frosted Designs where you need to use vellum or some sort of transparency on your card. Vellum is one of my favorite papers because of the beautiful subtle colors you can achieve when you use it. Here I used the Stampin' UP! Manhattan Texturz Folder and Stampin' Pastels. It's been a long time since I dragged them out and I had so much fun using them again! Have a great weekend!~Enjoy
