Without Strings


Today's card was a bit tricky to photo, especially has I wanted to show off the fact that I had stuck my image on acetate. It was an idea I had and I was pleased how it turned out although I was worried that my sticking fingers (I always seem to have glue somewhere on my fingers) would mark the acetate.
By the time I had attached the image and sorted out the Spellbinder floral oval frame I really couldn't work out how to decorate the card so I kept it simple. Just used the large Spellbinder flourish corner die and a Birthday sentiment and of course my image is Mo Manning called Daisy.
Well thats the large bank holiday and next week it September it all downhill to Christmas now and the weather has decided to turn into an early Autumn. One good thing its Simon Say Stamps Stamptember and I have some new goodies to play with only need the time to do so.

Hi Debby,

I agree how difficult it is to photograph acetate without lots of glare but but you managed this one perfectly. Love the fresh yellows and the lacy feel.
