I really didn't know what kind of background I wanted for this card. I tried plain white, embossed white, embossed Bermuda and then I tried running vellum thru an embossing folder and .... I really, really liked it! Well, let me start off by saying that the flowers were stamped on vellum as well. I used Stazon to do that and then I colored them with a marker (you could use aqua painter and ink as well).
There is a special softness to the flowers since they are already displayed on vellum so in my opinion the vellum background fit right in. Enjoy!!
