Acetate Rain



The theme this week on Less is More is ACETATE.

I'm totally addicted to my LIM fix on a Saturday morning now...the kitchen still needs sorting and the washing needs going in, but I needed to get this card made lol

Girl and heart circles by Art Journey from the Umbrella Girl plate..
I would have liked the phrase to be slightly higher but I had to cover a tiny crease in the acetate...it was damaged in transit in the post and all my acetate has the same indentation ...grrrrrr, but hopefully this still looks ok.

Have a good weekend all. x

Createology said...

Simple sweet and lots of thought. Happy weekend...

Karen said...

This is beautiful! I can see why this would be on your mind. I would say that getting this out of your system would definitely be a top priority, and would allow you to get to secondary activities, such as those mentioned, with a clear conscience.

Karen said...

This is an AWESOME card - can't say anything that the gazillion comments before haven't said!
Utterly fantastic!
