Cuttlebug and vellum be inspired #26

This is my entry for the Cuttlebug and Vellum card over at http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/04/cuttlebug-and-vellum-make-great-easter.html
It's not quite and Easter theme but it does have vellum and I've "cuttlebugged" it with Swiss Dots folder, plus there are gerberas in the shops now and it's Easter :o)
The gerbera is my own photograph decoupaged and the BP was designed from another of my own photographs by Pat, my partner in crime over on http://www.jandppictures.co.uk/ I really enjoyed making this one :o)
Materials/equipment:
Own photographs
Own/Pat's backing paper
Vellum
Martha Stewart doily lace punch
Cuttlebug folder
Ribbon
Pink gems for a bit of bling

What a lovely card! The embossed vellum is a beautiful background for the gerbera photo (I can't believe that's a photo...it's so stunning!).

The row of gems adds the perfect touch to the lace-like border! Beautiful work, Jackie!
