Stitches on vellum

Good morning, a brand  new week is here. I sat down to execute a card which was sitting in my head for last few days, I couldn't make because of the weekend, hubby and kiddos around, so decided to give them my time.

I have tried something new today, I has added stitches on the vellum, I never did this before. Actually I wanted to do heat embossing on vellum, but my shipment is still in Hong kong(I am waiting for the heat tool), so had to drop that idea. I used a shaded yellow thread to add the eyelet stitch flowers.

I had chose a vanilla colored textured card stock, added some random leaves all over, and then covered it with vellum, to give a feel of the sheer. I also punched the vellum border to give it a lace feel. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations - subway art builders, a few sequins added to finish the look.

Hope you all like it!

Linking this card with:

I like all the pictures from the DT's but keep coming back to this one as green is my weakness, plus it has the leaves too, I just had to do this. I chose the vanilla shades from the background, but kept the leaves and the sheer look from the dress onto my card.

Just editing to add the

it all about layers and stamps, which I had used on this card.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
