Now for something completely different from me...

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme this week has been chosen by the lovely Helene and is 'Use Acetate'. Our wonderful sponsors this week are Crimson Cloud and My Heart Pieces so 2 chances to win :-) 

So onto my DT card, I wanted to try acetate on a card. I embossed it (never done this before but love the result) and made my own card base using a piece of kraft cardstock and my embossed acetate panel. I used some very pretty paper on the inside panel and a matching piece on the back. What do you think...?

Side view...
  This is the back with room for some words...

Acetate - ebay
Paper - Sweet Shoppe by Lily Bee
Sentiment - Tiny Heartfelt Sentiments from Pink Petticoat
Seam binding & picot trim ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Buttons - stash
Other - Crafts Too Summer Burst embossing folder, Circle Nestabilities die, kraft cardstock, brown chalk ink pad

Please do come and join us over at Allsorts this week for our challenge x

Hope you have a lovely weekend x
