Parchment Crafting with Guest Designer Donna K

Hello again friends!
I'm back for week two of my guest posting gig with SweetStamps.
The challenge this week is "parchment" and let me tell you I am NEW to parchment technique.
I hope it doesn't show too much in my card that this was my first real experience with this beautiful technique.  
I chose soft pinks and grays for my card colors. I used a clear ink and a white embossing powder onto the vellum using the beautiful Parisian Bouquet stamp from SweetStamps. 
Once I heated the embossing powder the image showed up just lovely and I was pretty proud of myself for even trying this technique.  
I hope you'll give this technique and challenge a try too... I mean, why not, right?
I'm so tickled to be here with the gang at SweetStamps...thanks for having me again for another week!
