Bah! Humbug! Challenge #21 acetate

Over on Bah! Humbug! this week it's a challenge involving acetate, now I love acetate and as I missed posting my card last week decided to make sure this weeks was done nice and early.
This little card is quite involved really, I used alcohol inks on the acetate and then fastened it to the card blank, the holly wreath is cut on the cricut, I cut all the leaves and a circle to use as the base, I put a line of pinflair glue around the circle and layered the leaves onto it, this could be why it's not a perfect circle but then again nature doesn't do perfect cirles either, I dug out the bottle of Jones Tones paint which I have had for years and made little balls to represent berries unfortunately the card fell on the floor and they got a bit squashed but you still get the idea. I coloured some white ribbon with my promarkers and used the bow maker to do the bow on the top.
I then couldn't decide what to use as my greeting but remembered I had a load of these little plaques from a previous visit to Kanban.
Now the other card and I'm sorry it's a bit squiffy is the one I did for last weeks challenge but didn't get around to posting it in time but thought you should see it anyway and this is printed from Dancing with shadows cd from Joanna Sheen.

CD Sunday Challenge No.7 Feathered Friends

This week on CD Sunday we would like you to join us in creating something with the theme Feathered Friends. This week I've used a cd which came free on the Do Crafts Creativity magazine, quite often we get freebies and have a quick look but never use them so I decided that I would make something this time and this is the result. I have used aqua coloured gems to highlight both the birds and also some of the ends of the flowers.

I hope you like my effort and it inspires you to pop over and join in with us this week.
