My First Ever Acetate Card!

Here it is, my first ever acetate card...


Gosh, acetate is a little fiddly to ply with and not to mention so difficult to photograph. This is the best I could do. Can you see it? I think it turned out quite pretty & I'll save it for my Mum's birthday in October.

For this card I used Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White and Certainly Celery. I used En Francais for the background and the flowers, which were 'rock and rolled' in Pretty in Pink and Basic Black, are from Vintage Vogue. They have a half pearl in their centres. The sentiment is from Wonderful Favourites. It was punched out with the large oval punch and mounted on a scallop oval piece. The ribbon is Certainly Celery grosgrain.

Well, I'm off to start experimenting on decorating a cake for my birthday next week. If it turns out OK, I'll be sure to post some photos, but only if.... ha ha!

Bye!
