My first attempt

I am sharing a card that shows my first attempt in using white embossing paste.  The white embossing paste comes in the same container as the silver embossing paste but it is a lot lighter as if it is empty. 

It is my first time using embossing paste with plastic stencils.  It turned out pretty well - I didn't have any problem putting an even coat of paste on it, and it was easy to remove the stencil leaving the paste intact.  It was left to dry overnight, as I have no idea how long it would take, even though my coat was thin I didn't want to take any risks.  I was happy to see the beautiful results and couldn't wait to come back to play with it.

I was asked if I could make cards without any sentiment.  I rarely do that but I did give it a try.  Does it really need a sentiment? 

I have not used vellum in ages.  I found a strip of pink vellum in my scrap folder that has been sitting there for ever.   I didn't really think that I would use this strip one day but I did.  This is one of those happy moments!
