Material Girl

Well it's Saturday again and you know what that means LIMettes... A new challenge at Less is More.  This weeks is a theme of "Acetate". Now when I found this out I really did panic, I knew exactly where my acetate is, but didn't know if I could print on it... So I've used it as the card blank instead.... Here it is...



I've Printed off a Kraft sheet from Pink Petticoat ( My card blanks were too heavy) to use as an insert so it can be written, this has been attached inside with a little glossy accents. I've coloured in with promarkers (Blossom, Buttercup,meadow) the Pink Petticoat image and then cut this out. It's finished off with a clear dew drop from Ribbon Girl.  This has then been added to the front of the acetate along with the sentiment.  It's finished off with some seam binding and thread and a button.

The hardest bit was taking the photos....

Hope you like it...
