A Card with Vellum

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share a CAS card with vellum. 
When it comes to wintery card, vellum seems to be another great source to create  frosty look with minimum effort.

I did some embossing with this stamp set "Winter Wishes" on a piece of pattern paper.  After I did that, I didn't know what to do with the rest...So, I decided to top it off with a piece of vellum. And see colorful diecut sentiment? I sprayed Heidi Swapp's Color Shine on watercolor paper and then I made the colorful die cut.
Happy Christmas
 I love how this turned out.

Here is a total random note... some "Star War" photos--->a blast from the past.

You know what movies we will be seeing soon :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Virginia! I love the softness of the vellum panel and your sparkly sentiment is the perfect touch!
It's so much fun to see pics of your kids when they were younger...looks like you all had a blast at Disney!

Well you did choose the perfect thing to do with your background. Looks like a village on a cold, foggy, snowy day...topping it off with that bright sentiment reminds me of sunshine. Beautiful.

Virginia, I am delighted with your card. The vellum adds "mystery" and softens the image beautifully. Love the photos, enjoy Star Wars--who won't?--!!!!
