Embossed Acetate and Clear Views Card

I have been playing with some new Clear Views Transparency pictures from The Mark-it Place and this one just makes me smile. Weeeeeee- enjoy the ride! I cut the transparency picture and the white under it with a Spellbinders die. The card base is a Core'dinations two sided paper and I stamped and cut the "enjoy" star from the other side of the paper. The star die is a Spellbinders and "enjoy" is a Heidi Swapp stamp.  I dotted the "j" with a star gem I colored black with a Sharpie.

I cut one inch from the bottom of the front and attached a thick piece of acetate that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I added some green Stickles to the intersections of the embossing. It looks better in real life- just hard to photograph the clear acetate.

On the inside of the card, I sponged green stars with a stencil by Heidi Swapp, and stamped the perfect sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. I messed up my first attempt and the rest of the card was complete- don't you just hate that? So I stamped it again on the same green, cut it out and attached it to the center of the card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Through the Craft Room Door and Sweet Stamps
and the travel challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

You are always so creative and inventive with your designs. I think that is such a cute focal design and love the way you used the Cuttlebug folder too.
