Allsorts #7

Wow! How early I am on this weeks challenge from Allsorts??? The spec this week set by Jackie is to use acetate somewhere on the card.

I have my niece's 18th birthdays on Saturday so thought I'd make them acetate cards! I've never used acetate as the main body of the card before - but was quite pleased with how they turned out.

The fab glittery flowers are from wrapping paper I saw yesterday in 'that card shop!' I'd gone it to check out some damask paper that another niece likes for her wedding invites - I came out of the shop with 5 sheets of stunning black, purple glittery paper - flowers, stripes, damask and solid colours - may actually take a pic to show you!!!

Back to my Allsorts cards! As my niece's are identical twins I've always done them very similar cards with a slight variation - I thought Miss Anya would be a good choice - they are coloured with my WC pencils.

Hope you like my offering(s), off to see what other challenges I can do nice and early for a change!


  1. Theses are fab Carol! I love the colour combo - very striking!
