Acetate and flowers

Hi Everyone, what a beautiful day day we have had with 14C it was a beautiful Spring day, however this evening is reminding us Winter still hasn't gone.  It's worth it for the day we have had though.

Onto my card, my offering is something I haven't done before, but I saw the idea from here. All flowers and tag are from Paper Garden Products  I cut out all the layers and added them to acetate, that I had cut to fit the Papermania 8 x 8 card. Of course it had to have some bling and glitter.  The background paper which is on the main card is also PGP which I faded slightly.  I'm quite pleased with the result, and think this would work on smaller cards too.  It was great to have the cut files to match, in the kits too.  The ribbon I hoped would look like a butterfly perched on the tag?

This is absolutely stunning Faith. I often think about using acetate but not sure what sort of adhesive to use.

Very beautiful card Faith. Love the soft spring colours of the flowers and adding them to acetate is brilliant. 14c sounds wonderful....my garden is still under 2 feet of snow but the sun is shining so I'll be happy with that. hugs, Pat K xx

Faith this is just lovely. A new technique to me and I'll check your link for a tutorial. I keep reading about acetate, but then never try it. Your flighty ribbon bow did invoke a butterfly feel.. nice design touch. Love the soft spring colors. Very refreshing. Glad you had a nice day. We had a beautiful weekend, but don't think Mr. Winter has gusted his last - we might get a bit more cold before spring really arrives. TFS such a beautiful card & Hugs too
