2nd post of the day, challenge entry, please scroll down to read my earlier post

Hi there, me again, just a quickie . . . . this week's challenge over on Simply Less Is More was to use acetate!!! Not a speck of acetate in sight which might mean this would be the first challenge I would have missed since they started them, I didn't really want to miss it - especially as I'd won a prize for March - thought it might seem rude not to enter. The girls over on LIM offered several possibilities and it's gotten to Friday before I've realised (holiday head alert here!) that I DO indeed have acetate . . . all of my self adhesive gems are mounted on the blooming stuff and I've been using them like crazy all week so have almost finished a sheet of ACETATE!!! Going to be almost right up to the wire before the challenge closes but, FINALLY, here is my acetate entry - Hurrah! Not perhaps my finest ever card but I shall leave you to judge for yourselves.

Front view

An angled view so you can see the acetate!

Materials used:
  • Cream C6 card and envelope
  • Recollections bee sentiment
  • Retro flower punched in acetate and adhesive supplied using my Xyron sticker maker before . . .
  • applying Silver leafing to flower
  • Acetate with gemstones to attach acetate flower to card
  • Marvy Le Plume II yellow marker

Hope you like it and ...... to my fellow LIM-ettes, my apologies if I've not commented on your entry but I'm still on vacation - I've gone through as many as I've had time for and if yours isn't one I've commented on it's not because I didn't like it - honest!

Happy Easter folks

Happy Easter to you too Kathy... just made it under the wire with this super card.
It's surprising what you can find when you really set your mind to it!
It's really lovely!
See you tomorrow for the next one!

Hi Kathy

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my LIM entry! Yours is lovely the dangly flower and gems is gorgeous! Now you asked about the swirls stamped on my butterfly, they are Autumn Leaves by Rhonna Farrer - flourishes v:1. Hope that helps.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday.
