Scraplifting Saturday

It is Day 147on the 365 card blog and the challenge for today is to scraplift one of the DT members cards. Vicky is the one giving the challenge, so I decided to take a look at her blog and choose a card from there. For my challenge, I chose this simple card that she made during the 'Shortcuts' week. She used a stamp set that I didn't have, but I DID have the Tart and Tangy set from SU, so used that set for my card. (I think this is the first time I have used this set!!) She bound two pieces of plastic together for her card base, but since I didn't have that, and didn't really want to bind anything together, I just used the image idea for my card. I did choose to use flower eyelets at the top instead of ribbon and I punched all the way through the cardstock. I overlayed a piece of vellum to create the softer look. The vellum I used has some texture on the front of it too. I found the sentiment stamp in my collection and thought it fitting for this card.
Thanks for taking a look and thank you to Vicky for the inspiration for this card.
