Hello

Hi there!  I've got a pretty card with a fun technique to share with you today.  I'm also hosting over on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog.

I used watercolor paper and some color shine sprays to create the background.  Then I embossed this pretty flower on vellum.  I used a debossing folder for the 'hello' sentiment at the bottom.  I stitched the vellum to the background layers with my sewing machine.  To finish it up I added some sequins.
