Flower & Vellum Card

We made this Flower & Vellum Card at Stamp Class on Friday.  I am so sad this Remarkable You stamp set is retiring.  It is one of my favorites to use for a variety of techniques.  This time it is just colored with markers.  This would also be a nice Mother’s Day card.  Just change the sentiment.
