Curtain Call Challenge - Pretty and Pink

The acetate is back again!! Yes, after looking at the gorgeous inspiration photo last night from the Curtain Call Challenge Blog
I had an idea for another sort of shaker card.
Isn't this photo gorgeous? I loved all the gold highlights and the soft pinks, so I couldn't help myself but go a little bit gold crazy.

I wanted to try doing a shaker card which was completely see through. It took an awful lot of fiddling to get the rectangle frames together perfectly but in the end it was all worth it. I was going to stamp the sentiment on the inside but felt it needed something on the front. 

If I owned some embossing products I would have loved to have embossed the sentiment in gold. Decided my next thing to save up for is a heat gun, a Versamark Pad and some embossing powders.

The pink glitter washi tape is from Papervine. The gold hearts from The Warehouse and the sentiment is from Hero Arts 'Year Round Sentiments'.

I'm also going to link this card as my 3rd entry to the Artful Crafts Challenge where the theme this month is 'Anything Goes'.

Its a glorious day here today, so I'm off shortly to take the dogs for a walk and then back here for some much needed gardening. I started another shaker-type card last night but ran out of steam at midnight. Will carry on with it tonight while I watch Revenge and Scandal...may even break out my secret stash of Peanut M&M's...yum!

Take care
