Playing in Paradise #110 - Embellishments!



Now here's a challenge that was fun to play! Nina is our hostess  at Playing in Paradise this week, and she wants us to
PPC #110

Love that little ladybug :) I thought I would try NOT using buttons and see what happened:

Supplies: kraft & chocolate brown card stock; scrap of vellum; rub-ons from Bo Bunny; trim from Webster's Pages; birthday sentiment from Mrs. Grossman's


Vellum being the tricky creature that it is, I kept the piece of vellum much longer than it shows - it extends all the way underneath the brown trim. I used Scor-Tape to adhere the vellum (just one long strip on the left), then more Scor-Tape on top to adhere the brown trim, and another to adhere the aqua. I am continually impressed by how well Scor-Tape holds trims - and yet is forgiving enough to let them go if you happen to need to tweak it a little bit. 

This challenge will be open until next Thursday, April 4th.  To add your NEW project to the linky & see what the rest of  the team has created, click on over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog, and check out the DT on their blogs too:

I will likely be back later on today - I've got lots of Easter cards to share before Easter! I'll leave you with a picture of Abby last night after a good hard play in the backyard...she was due for a bath anyway, and I figured she may as well enjoy herself beforehand!

It's a little muddy out there...
xoxo,
Jessi

I love the embellishments that you added to that pretty PP. They are perfect! Scor-Tape really IS the best isn't it!

I love the funky colours and the doodly swirls, are they a stamp or a paper?
thanks for your comment on my blog, I think most people will have at least one cat that could be called Spesh. x

Beautiful colours together, yep vellum is one tricky customer...always seems we try and disguise it on our cards so we can stick the darn thing down invisibly !!!
Urrghh what a mucky pup..... Think how much fun the boys would have out there *wink*

Those trims are so cool! Can't decide if I like the aqua one or the sparkly one better... They look really cool together!
