Acetate love

Hello you all . How wonderful you look . So chirpy and bright . You must be crafting . Right?
I spent the bulk of the afternoon commenting on Michelle's Make it Monday entrys . Fabulous creations every where  I went . I cant believe that there are papercrafters all over the world and we are only a click away from each other . Isn't that amazing ?
Any way , yesterday I made a card with acetate hoping to enter into http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2011/04/week-11-theme-acetate.html
but  I went over board with layer and embellishment,  I think,  so here is another which I hope is just right this time .
Please excuse my fingers in view. This is the inside look  first , and as the acetate would not lay flat I held the card open .


This photo  above shows card partly open to show how front label sits over that insde one to show a border when closed .

So here you see that the card front is clear except for  brown dot paper and Very Vanilla card with sentiment .
                                                                Recipe .
                                                                           Acetate as card base
                                                                      DSP American Crafts, Play Jungle Gym
                                                                  Very Vanilla, SU. Brown dot paper Christina Rae.
                                                              Spellbinders Nestabilities, Label 19.
                                                              Stamps, sentiment,  Stamp-It, Well Scripted , SU
                                                                Ink Basic Brown.
Hope the photos are clear enough as Acetate is hard to photograph.
I'm happy to enter this in http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2011/04/week-11-theme-acetate.html
           Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

This looks really great Shirley Anne, I think acetate really makes the card more elegant and expensive looking! Pami x

This is fabulous Shirley-Anne, however we have kinda lost the 'white space' element from the card. However, I love the design and I love the papers.
I'm glad you were fired up by the challenge.

I really like the paper you've used on your card - bold, bright and fab! The sentiment is great!

And I know what you mean about the community of crafters - here I am on holiday, still getting my fix :)
