Entree 3 Francs

Hi there blogging friends . Welcome to my room .  A glorious Autumn day in Adelaide . Hope that you have enjoyed a perfect day where ever you are.
I began this afternoon making what I thought would  be a card for Simply less is More acetate challenge .  BUT ...got carried away so wont even try to enter it .
Card base is Close to Cocoa , retired from SU.

Recipe
Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, scrap patterned paper, Acetate.
Ink, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black.
Spellbinders  Nestabilities Labels Nineteen
Swiss Dots embossing folder
Stamps , Vintage Collage, TJ Designs Rubber Stamps .
Artistic Etchings SU.
Jewels Basic Pearls SU
flower from stash
I embossed Very Vanilla piece then  cut the apeture . I stamped  the tower on to green patterned scrap and the Dreamer onto the Acetate. I then layered the three pieces.
 Just added Jewels flower and ticket as embellishing .
I like it , hope you do too.
This will be kept for something special I think !
Now I have to think of something else for the acetate challenge .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
