2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan # 18

What with holidays and being really busy I have been unable to make cards in time to fit the challenges for 2 Sketches 4 You, but I am happy to report that other than suffering from a stinking cold and chest infection, things are getting back to normal now.

Kazan's sketch 18 was used to form the basis of this card. I have recently subscribed to a magazine and the freebie pack was from Papermania Sweet Nothings collection and it had a pack of printed acetate in it which I have never used before. I have seen many lovely cards made my fellow bloggers and I know the main thing to be careful of was to not make the adhesive used obvious.

The ribbon hides the join where the front of the card is attached to the acetate. The inside of the card was lined with paper from HOTP. The star ribbon is self adhesive from Papermania and the birdy is a freebie digital scrapbook downloadable from Imagine by Fran

Until now, I hadn't appreciated just how awkward these are to photograph as it is difficult to see the design and the colours don't appear as strong so I have also scanned it in.

I have enjoyed the challenge of making this card and have more sheets of acetate to use so will be making other cards. I may need to brush up on my photography skills though LOL
