Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks...time for a challenge card.   The challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers has been set by my lovely FH teamie Lythan and is......

"I would love to see something clear on your card. It could be an acetate card, an acetate embellishment, a window cut in the card, clingfilm, OHP sheet, Mirror fragments - anything that shows that your card is clearly one of the best!"
and I decided to go with an acetate card

WeRMemoryKeepers.....Nonsense Collection
Ribbon: American Crafts
Self Adhesive Gems
Sentiment: Doodlebug Stickers

Lots of folks say to me that they struggle with acetate cards.....the secret is to choose shapes or images that you can place back to back so that the inside front is nice and do not want to see glue or D/S tape when you open the card.....what I struggle with is.....getting a half decent's either too bright or as is the case today....the weather is totally 3D.....DARK....DREARY AND DISMAL......with some rain and a lot of wind thrown in........Back soon with "DOPEY MARE VIRUS STRIKES AGAIN"
