Bright Birthday Wishes

Hello!  Today's card was inspired by Debra Burgin's Sunny Birthday card over at her blog, Heartfelt Inkspiration.  Her use of vellum and the striking color combination caught my eye immediately.  To make this card more of my own I omitted the polka dotted label and scallop oval punch, opting for the modern label and large oval punches instead. 
    I stamped the main image with StazOn black and then used blender pens and ink to color in the flowers.  The white card stock was layered onto Basic Gray and vellum was adhered to the white.
     When using vellum it's important to remember that traditional adhesives, such as SNAIL, will show through on your project.  To avoid this faux pas I use vellum adhesive, a specially designed adhesive that is invisible under vellum.  You can find it in the adhesive section of your local craft store.
