Less is More - Week 11

I think I felt the same as most of the rest of the LIMettes when I saw this week's challenge on the Less Is More challenge blog was to use acetate!  Not one of my favourite craft materials but having had a think about it I've come up with this card which uses acetate behind the two circular apertures on the side of the card.  The stamps all come from a Do Crafts set which was free on the front of a magazine - I needed something that matched, was small enough to fit in the aperture and was easy to cut out!  I stamped the main image directly onto the front of the card (I'm getting better at it!) and then coloured it with Promarkers.  I stamped the two little cakes separately, coloured them and then cut them out - I stuck them to the acetate with a little bit of double sided tape.

    Love the idea you used... isn't it funny, everybody seems to hate it, but everybody has some! What a good way to use it up!
    Acetate is being liberated all over the country and elsewhere too!
    Have a good week!
