Flowers and Pearls

This is the first time I use acetate on a card, and I'm sure going to use it again - I like the possibilities it gives to combine the front and the inside of the card.

I cut out an oval with an X-cut die and used a sentiment from a Dylusions stamp set - I chose to stamp it on the Prima DP with honeycomb pattern that I attached to the inside of the card.

The front is decorated with lots of pearls and various die cuts using scraps. The butterfly die came free with a magazine, the flowers are made using a Memory Box die, and for the leaves and card base I've used Spellbinder dies.
I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the center of the butterfly and the flowers.

This card is for these challenges:
1) House of Cards - July Color Palette + Classic & Elegant
2) Card Mania - Pearls and/or Gems
3) Lexi's Creations - For a Friend
4) Polkadoodles - #29 Let It Fly
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

This is such a apt sentiment to describe me. I had a car accident (we hit a deer 5 years ago) and i got a brain sometimes I need my friends to sing the words back to me!

Wonderful card Pia!

Very cool use of the acetate. Love how you've used the pearls and the rolled flowers are just perfect.

Beautiful Pia. I haven't used acetate yet but will have to try as I too like how you have combined the centre of the card with the front. What stands out for me in this card is the perks lining the frame x
