Acetate, and foil, and flowers? Oh My.

Before I tell you about my card, I want to share a bit of exciting news!!I'm so thrilled my cupcake project was chosen as the winner for the cuttlebug be inspired #24!!Whoo-Hoo!

This cool card sketch is from cuttlebug be inspired #25 and sheetload from shortcuts. The card base is acetate a clear paper that is a lot of fun to work with. Its so cool because it looks as though the paper is floating inside the card. The card features a piece of foil embossed with the paisley folder, and all the paper including the foil is rounded on the edges.The inside of the card is just as pretty as the outside, and is sure to be a pleasing surprise to who ever I decide to mail it to, I will keep that a secret just in case she is reading :) shhh!
The ribbon is on the inside of the card and I used a circle punch to cut a half circle in the acetate to allow the ribbon to play peek a boo.

Check out this too cute clucker my friend Linea from the henhouse crafters gave all of us for Easter! She walks along and lays her little bubblegum eggs as she goes. Its hilarious! Thanks Linea, you are one cool "chick".
