Seize The Birthday - Vellum


Welcome to another Seize The Birthday challenge!  This time our optional theme is vellum.

I've used a Sizzix 3D embossing folder to emboss some pink vellum.  I read somewhere that a Zig 2-way glue pen is the best way to attach vellum, just adding a teensy bit along the edges.  So that's what I did!  The bird is from STAMPlorations Trendy Birds, and the medallion is from Craftwork Cards - been in my stash for years.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team, and play along with us!

I'm entering this into Simon Says Monday Challenge - Things With Wings.
