Another 'green' card that isn't!

This card is for day 253: Super Sketch Sunday on 365 cards:

This is another 'green' card - I'm not surprised if your reaction is to scratch your head because there's no green to be seen. The 'green' element is that the acetate and the flowers are recycled, so it fits in again with How much is too much? 119: 'going green'.

It's also good for:

Crazy for challenges 11: acetate
Cooking it up with Kate 5: recipe:
a. Use a flower. If possible use it in a different way such as folded, as part of the pattern of the paper, embossed into the cardstock (I've used flowers, but nothing much unusual, except they have been recycled and are raised up with foam pads)
b. Use something clear or see through/reflective. Examples are a Dew Drop, Rhinestone, Acetate, a window in the card, a mirror (there is definitely acetate and glitter on here)
c. Choose a sketch from another challenge as your layout.

Another one for Cute card Thursday 86: 'glitter me silly!' - there is glitter on the flowers, on the acetate and the base card is glittered (although that doesn't really show here) and Frosted designs: 'bling it on'

The strip of embossed acetate has been stuck on to a piece of Making Memories paper and is good for:
Just us girls week 7: 'dry embossing'
Lots to do 46: 'embossing'
Die cuts R us: 'emboss something'

Cook up a card
November recipe is ' 3 flowers, 2 gems and 1 butterfly' (I hope I'll be forgiven that there are more than 2 gems on the acetate)

It's very difficult to get a photo of a card that has acetate and glitter on it - I tried several times - and this is as good as it gets:
