Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Christie challenged us to create a card using acetate. As much as I LOVE acetate cards, it is so difficult to photograph them! I finally got a picture that didn't have too much of a glare. I used the Rainy Day Friends set from Paper Pretties. The oval piece was cut using the largest plain oval Nestabilities die. I actually cut two. . .one for the front of the card and one for the sentiment inside. I added Water Dew Drops to give the feel of rain. I love how the light shines through them on an acetate card. This card is on its way to Julie! Hope she likes it. Make sure you check out the other Prettie Girl blogs to see their wonderful creations! Today is my turn to issue the next challenge. My challenge is to make a bookmark. Have fun!
