Cupcake Craft Challenge 99...Acetate

Morning everyone...WOW...what a hot weekend...a little too hot for my liking...I was wilting in the heat on Saturday...thankfully it should be a bit cooler today and hopefully a little bit of rain for the grass is scorched and looks more like straw lol!

We have a new challenge for you today over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog...Victoria has chosen this weeks brilliant theme which is ACETATE! At first I didn't have a clue what I could do then hubby asked me for a wedding card for a pal of his that was getting married and his only stipulation was that it had to have a car on it!

I had a brain wave (which dosn't happen very often) to use some acetate in the window of the car on this gorgeous Bugaboo image...I ran the acetate through the Big Shot in a dotty Cuttlebug folder and although it doesn't show up very well in the piccy... the window stands out really well in real life! I hope you'll be able to come and join us this week...the DT have created some fantastic acetate projects for inspiration if you should need it.

We are sponsored by Paper Jewels this week and the winner will win a $15 gift certificate to spend in their online store!

Digi Image : Bugaboo Stamps (Just Married)
Design Paper : Nitwit Collections (Summer Breeze)
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Certainly Celery Card Stock: SU!
Embellishments : Blue Organza ribbon...Pearls & Flowers from my Craft Stash!
Tools : Nestability Scalloped Square...MS Frond Punch...SU Scalloped Border Punch!
Sentiment : Making Memories Rub-On

Hi Donna,
This card is brilliant! I love the acetate window and how the dots on the acetate match the dotty paper on the car. Great image too!

Oh how cool is this card, Donna? The pretty subtle colors so well coordinated with those fab flowers! I love the acetate in the rear window - the brads look just like tail lights; very clever! Love it! I am not a sun lover either - hope you get cooler weather! :-)

Sandra said...

Hi Donna, hope you are well. Wow! What a totally gorgeous and fun card. Just adore the colours and image you have used. The flowers set of the card beautifully. So much detail.
I see that you have stepped down from running the cupcake challenge. You did a magnificent job while you were running it. You'll be a hard act to follow. Cupcake has always been one of my fav's.
Take care. Big Hugs
Sandra xx

Hi Donna!
brilliant card! such lovely papers and the little punched corner is delightful!

It's been terribly hot here too! yuck!! We did finally get some rain and the grass is somewhat green again! lol The weatherman is forecasting a rainy weekend and I'm hoping he's right. We were too dry for too long!
I'm ready for fall! haha
Take care!
hugs & blessings!
