Harriet's first layout

This week at CRAFT Challenges I was pushed out of my comfort zone yet again.  Challenge 77 asked us to use vellum - something I never use and don't have in my stash.  I managed to scrounge some vellum scraps from a friend, and I met the challenge with this 8x8 layout about our newest guinea pig, Harriet Jersey Caramel:

What I did:  I punched out some retro flowers, scrunged them up, then misted with Smooch Spritz.  Next, I layered them up and secured with a brad.  Here's a little detail shot:

I'm also submitting my layout at:

I used punches (retro flower) and ribbon
