Framed with acetate

The current challenge on Stampotique 31 is to use acetate, so I found up some that I bought long ago that has 'best wishes' foil embossed all over it and put this behind a die cut frame (this is for City crafter 58: I've been framed) , having stamped the Janet Klein butterfly stamp directly on the pale pink card - also the corners using Penny Black corner piece, all stamped with memento rich cocoa. The PB stamp was one that I received as a prize for April challenges on Penny Black at Allsorts. The flowers are Martha Stewart.

It was hard to get a photo without reflection on the acetate - but at least it shows that it is actually acetate!

Stamp man challenge 23 is a recipe to choose a line from a grid - I chose: die cut, homemade background and sparkle & bling (the flowers are glittered in the centres and the acetate shines).

This is also for:

Penny Black 153: one for the girlies
Use it Tuesday 8: flowers - with a stamp not previously inked (the PB corner piece)
Dream valley 8: stamp something
Top tip Tuesday 35: use two or more stamps
Word play 4: scallops
Stamptacular 113: bugs or boys
Flutterby Wednesday 156: CAS, including butterfly
Spoon full of sugar 153: things with wings
Allsorts 105: things with wings
Crazy amigo: insects
Nightshift stamping 68: clean & simple with flowers
Sukkersott 126: show us your style - I love stamping and flowers
Inky impressions 16: shine on (the acetate and glittered flowers)
Let's craft and create 20: dies to die for
My time to craft 142: use a die cut
Inspire me Fridays 8: anything goes
Creative card crew: anything goes
The paper shelter 15: anything goes
Truly scrumptious 57: anything goes
2 sisters 41: anything goes
