Vellum Card

Some cards come together easily, like my vintage take on the House of Cards color scheme. This card representing the style of "classic and elegant" did not. I've been thinking for a week on what to create, before I picked inspiration from Donna's card to use vellum, and I also got some ideas from different challenge blogs.
I haven't used any DP for this card, only vellum and stamps from 4 different sets.
I used a script stamp from Kort&Godt to make the background.  I heat embossed with white EP. Then I used 2 different stamps to make the swirls with silver glitter EP. For my doily flowers I used pink EP and fussy cut the images. The two smallest flowers are mounted on foam. One got a pink pearl in its center, but for the cluster of flowers I decided to add light green ones around them. The sentiment (meaning congratulations or happy birthday in Norwegian) is die cut. I covered it with silver glitter EP.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - Photo+ CAS or Classic
2) Creatalicious Challenges - #60 Pearls and Glitter
3) Sentimental Sundays - #195 Make your own background paper
4) ABC Challenge - F is for Flowers
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Nydeleg kort :)
Eg trudde at om man brukte varmluft på vellum, so brann det opp!
Men det e jo glimrande at det funkar :D
Stiligt :)
