Sweet Stamps Acetate Challenge

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to create a card using acetate. This is an awesome challenge, we want to see what you come up with for this theme. Can't wait to see what you all can come up with, but be sure to use a Sweet Stamps stamp....

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.

 I really love stamping on and using acetate.  I stamped "Poinsettia Candles" 2 times onto white card stock and colored using copics. I fussy cut out the Poinsettia Candles and attached that to my acetate card.  I then backed that with an oval cut out of green on the inside of the card.  The ovals were cut using Cheery Lynn Oval Classics. This will hide the tape used to attach the image to the front of the card. 
 I cut out parts of the 2nd colored image and popped those up on my main image.  I added some glitter to the flames and the centers of the poinsettia's to give it a bit of pop.

I added some ribbon going down the center of my card crease and a bow to finish off my card.  The pictures aren't the greatest as I have yet to figure out how to take pictures of the acetate cards.

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
