ACETATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I knew I shouldn't of looked at the Less of More challenge ACETATE what were they thinking. So I had an idea of an acetate panel and one of the reasons I brought the cuttlebug was a demo that I saw embossing acetate.
I used the daisy folder which in hindsight was a bit tiny especially to photo which is way I added a close up pic.
Then I dotted the dots and the flower centres with a glaze pen. I did decorate inside but it wasn't what I called Less is More so this card 2 really.
The daisy is a sixxiz die which MJ had at her crop and when I tried to buy it I found it retired only to discover its in the Stampin Up mini book with a BFF whose a stampin up demo I had no probs buying one. Along with the decorative label punch and matching stamps, did managed to get one of the Woodware sentiments inside it.
Whoops do I spy a touch of ribbon!
Of course in RL it looks much better, you really see how well the acetate is embossed even my DD was impressed.

Well done Debby on a great card :) who ever thought acetate could be used in crafting lol.... I have to admit I haven't given this weeks challenge a go, shame on me.

I'm glad you've given your Cuttlebug a new purpose Debbie... it's probably been waiting to emboss some acetate ever since you bought it!
That's a great flower and highlighting all those little daisies must have taken you ages.
Thanks so much for another charming submission!
See you next time.
