Let's Squash It - Challenge #11 - Not Paper, Not Card

This card would not exist without the prompt from Let's Squash it Challenge #11 - Not Paper, Not Card which is why I like challenges so much and also the inspiration from the other entrants.

I have had a piece of printed acetate for a very long time. I did use half of it on the second card in this post. So something that had not occurred to me to do with it before is emboss it! I used a TL EF called Victorian rose. It is a pattern of three parts and I won it a few years ago from a challenge and never used it - so I am also entering into the NBUS challenge #29, also the flower die has it's first use too.

I decided to place my other decoration behind the acetate. The sentiment and the rose I cut from a snippet but unfortunately I had no more of that colour to mat and layer. Instead I went with this gold card which shows the embossing nicely. I then also cut a frame from the same card so I could hide the sticking of the acetate.

Finally the acetate was not big enough for the frame so I added the ribbon to hide the gap.

As I used snippets I'm also entering into the Snippets Playground over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

It's a lovely colour palette Lynn and isn't it nice feeling when we use something from stash we've had ages.

Great card and a real stash-buster too. Love the addition of the die cuts.
