Aqua & Acetate!

What a beautiful day we've had today in sunny old Bolton...and I've been working most of it LOL! Well Keiran was shattered because he was playing outside all day today at nursery, so he had an early night, and I took the opportunity to get half an hour in the craft room! Now it really needs a tidy, as I can slowly feel my mojo sliding under the mess, but I did manage to come up with a couple of cards...one is drying so I can't photograph it tonight, but here is the other......

I have made this to fit in with 2 challenges......
Less is More - Acetate
Ooh La La - Aqua, Bling & Sentiment

After making a 'split' acetate card, I fancied making one with a slight twist. For this one I simply cut a panel out of the card blank at an angle, replaced the section with acetate, added an insert from a paper pad from Holland, and finished with my sentiment and 3 gems. I think it is very simple but I quite like it! :)

Hope you've all had a lovely day and that tomorrow is just as lovely! Now I have to go and make a Christening card and a card for my wonderful Keiran for his 3rd birthday!
