Your entry will put you in the running to win the wonderful prize from our very own Design Team member - Beth

The following is another amazing creation from our Guest Designer Mags.
The background and the fan are vellum.

Beth can't bear to part with it (I can completely understand .... can you?  :)) 

from Cathy - the verse inside an anniversary card printed on fancy vellum

From Lauren who has used vellum to create a shaker pocket behind the photo which has been filled with wood veneer shapes and sequins.
