Daring Card Makers first timer



I've been watching the Daring Card Makers challenge site for a little while now, and this week finally found a moment to create a card following this weeks challenge of using 'some acetate, vellum, plasma or anything else remotely 'see-through' on your card'. ....which I happen to love working with. :0)

I used acetate for stamping butterflies onto....some I left in a flat background panel, some I cut out. Also I added a neat little lens that I've had sitting on my desk for sometime and finally I got to use that.

Another absolutely stunning piece of artwork! I love the filagree border down the side, and the use of the optometrist lens is striking. The little girl also appears to be dimensional on the page. Did you add pop-dots behind her?
