Use It Up Day

It's not very often that I scrap with papers that I grab from the shelf 
as I've usually got a kit on the go 
but today I need a subtle look page and none of the kits I was working with were suitable.

I grabbed a Christmas paper from my shelf (OK I used the reverse) 
and some vellum and joined in with

I rotated the sketch for the purpose of my portrait photograph, embossed some vellum and drew around a side plate before adding a few embellishments to create a softer look.
I think it must have been Use It Up day as I finished off 3 small sheets of embellishments.

I also used my Tim Holtz die for the first time since buying it over on Crafty Sellers.

 The prompt I was following was to scrap somebody special and who better than
my parents as the subject.
