Rudolf day for February

Hi there! Firstly can I say how sorry I am that I haven't made it in to blog land half as much as I would've liked recently. Thanks for all your lovely comments. I am hoping I will get round to leaving a few more comments soon, as soon as I finish the commission I am working on.
February has sped by and Rudolf day has taken me completely by surpirse! I did manage to knock up two cards, but one of them was a complete disaster when I put my reading (crafting) glasses on, lol, so it got confined to the bin!
Here is my sole offering this month then
I spotted the idea on Pinterest of using a piece of Vellum as an overlay and making a scene underneath and having a tree on top. It really does look like mist. All stamps are from inkylicious and the scene underneath was done with my ink dusters and memento inks.
Do pop over to Scrappy Mo's and take a look at the DT's gorgeous cards!
Thanks for looking!

It's gorgeous Sally! I've seen this idea on Pinterest too and you've pulled it off perfectly! Can I ask how you attached the vellum overlay without it showing? Clever girl!
