More Acetate and Parchment

Morning everyone. Well, here we are at the start of another week and I hope everyone is well rested and from the weekend. I have a card that I'm entering into 3 challenges today and it's another of those hard to photograph ones. Honestly, a health warning is needed on the packs of acetate - just to remind us that it's difficult to take a picture of the finished item. lol. Only kidding. Acetate looks so stunning that we just have to use it now and again, don't we?

For this card, I stamped the motif in white stayzon onto the acetate sheet and cut out a window in the card blank to set it into. The parchment wrap has tiny sentiments added to in white stayzon - hopefully the picture below shows those a bit clearer but in case it's hard to read they say 'together', 'ever after' and 'foreverness'. and then one group of flowers and a bow finish it off. I thought this would make a nice wedding or anniversary card.

Okay, so the inspiration for this card comes from:
Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge - the fab sketch
Allsorts Challenge - All White
A second entry into:
Less is More - Monochromatic (can't get more monochromatic than all white!)

It's a busy week for me this week so I have my posts all ready to go and I'm going to be returning comments for those kind enough to comment on my posts when I get home from work each night - but I may not have time to do too much general blog hopping I'm afraid. Never mind, things will quieten down again in a couple of weeks or so.

Items Used:
Stamps Waltzing Mouse: Victorian Frippery and Say it Loud.
White Stayzon
White card, Parchment and Acetate.
Paper flowers and ribbon bow.

Thanks for looking,
Sharon xx
