Who doesn't love a freebie!!

I just adore the effect of these new papers that I got free from Stampin' Up!.  They are 6x6 sheets of printed vellum with 24 sheets in a pack.  Their name says it all really ' Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack'.

I've used just under half a sheet and popped it face down on my piercing mat. I used a stylus to 'colour' the leaves turning them white by applying gentle pressure on the stylus.  Flip it over again and you've got embossed leaves.  I've matted the piece on to a piece of soft sky card stock and then added a basic grey and smoky slate banner, the thank you is part of the Stampin' Up! set An Open Heart.

The Wren is part of the same set and appealed to me as today I get quite a few of them visiting my garden and in the past I was a Jenny Wren in the Royal Navy.  This one is stamped with tuxedo black memento ink onto whisper white card stock and yes I cut her out with scissors not a die!!

And to close I'd just like to say 'Friday is my favourite F word!'
