Wishing You

So how was your weekend? Ours was very nice. Had a cook out on Saturday for some friends and had a nice visit with them.
Today after doing a bit of cleaning up from last night I was able to get in some crafty time so I have a card  to share with you tonight.
 Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge AUG Week 4 was used for the design
 I decided to flip the sketch on it's side just because. ;)
The colors of the card came from the fabulous inspiration photo at Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger:
Isn't that cup and saucer delightful! I was so hoping that I would have time to play along this week because I just love all those beautiful colors of the flowers and saucer.
I wanted to capture the translucent color of the saucer.The only way I could think of getting that look was by  using vellum. I inked a piece of vellum with Tumbled Glass distress inks and inking tool and adhered it to white cardstock before running  both through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. It is really hard to capture the color of the vellum with the camera. It is so very pale.
 It took me a while to figure out what colors to use for what elements. I had so many options but I eventually worked it out. The papers are from DCWV Matstack Citrus. I love how subtle some of the pattern paper is from that stack.
The flower stamp is from an Heidi Grace set called Paradise. I stamped it with StazOn, Blazing Red ink and cut it out adhering it with a pop up dot. The sentiment is from the Verve stamp set "Wishing You". I backed all the elements with red pattern paper to help each one stand out a bit more.
And since I used vellum I thought I might as well enter this card in A Blog Named Hero's #30 Victorious Vellum Challenge:
