Stamping For the Weekend Challenge Week 4 - Pocket full of ... & Allsorts Challenge #7 - Acetate

One For Two...

I made this creation for this weeks Stamping for the Weekend and Allsorts Challenges. Its a gift card that I tried to make to look like a Cupcake Shop!! (yes I know) To make the image look like a shop window I overlaid a piece of acetate. I tried to angle it in the photo so you can see it but it didnt work, but it is there!!


I used Doodlebug DP's (again.. lol) The stamp, I am sure you know by now as I have used it a lot!! is by Stampin Up, cardstock is bazzill and bling from stash!! Do go and see the great DT cards as they are great inspiration. Oh and thank you again Allsorts for choosing me to be the winner of last weeks challenge!!!
Have a great weekend
