It's Blog Hop Time!





This month's challenge was to use acetate. Let me just say that I now hate acetate. LOL. Honestly I had the worst time with this, it did not come easy. For my card I actually recycled some packaging to make a 3D window in which to hang my stamped flowers. The flowers are stamped from the Garden of Life Set. I used all PTI products on this card with the exception of the Hero Art sparkle embossing powder, DMC floss, and crystal stickles. I cut the square hole using my nesties. I glued everything down with glue dots.
