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!

Loved making this card - I love it when I sit down not having a clue what I'm going to do and it all 'evolves' into something that's not too bad!
Cut out an apature using Nestie to make a shaker card - the star backing is some packing card from some gems - so I'm recycling too!
Used some fab Anita's 3d star stickers - I do hope that them being silver doesn't make my card nul-and-void!!!

I was at the Millenium Stadium last night with another 60,000 people. It was FAB!!!
If you've yet to go to the Take That Circus Tour you may not want to look at any more pictures - it might take the surprise out of the fantastic spectacle you are in for! Just don't take your eyes off the mass of balloons that come onto stage at the start ;)
I will put a couple more of the 196 photos I took up on Friday :)
By the way, we weren't this close - I just took the highest zoom camera that we have!

The charm, bead and chain all came from very inexpensive braclets that I bought to dismantle - I could make about 10 of these, all for £2!!!!!!!
The Nestie with Henry and the sentiment have both been heat embossed with Holographic powder - I love the look of whole pieces embossed like this.
