Creative cottage challenge # 20 Donna's pick


Good morning to you all and I hope you are all well today.

My mojo seems to have taken a slump recently and left me feeling kind of flat I have also been trying to enjoy the summer with the boys which is leaving me totally shattered at the end of the day !

Having said that I just couldn't miss a creative cottage challenge (although I almost did - sorry Tracy x) so here is DT card for challenge #20.

Our challenge this week was set by the lovely Donna who pushed us all out of our comfort zone and picked acetate - I def struggled with this one and having a mojo rating of zero certainly didn't help but I tried my best and hope it doesn't disappoint y'all.

I have used Tracy's fab kit called "Baby Ellie and family" and also the baby Ellie digi stamp which I have printed onto acetate and glittered from the back - she really looks gorg and I think I will def do this with her again on another card.
The front of my card is made entirely of acetate and I embossed half of the front with my trusty swiss dots folder and my bigshot - you can't really see this in the picture but it does give a nice dimpled effect to the acetate.

The back ground of my card is a paper from the kit printed onto a hammered white card - I love this paper it's one of my fav's.
All that was left to do was add a bow and a sentiment - voila card done - quite simple really but I hope you like it x

((hugs)) Suzie xx

Suzie your card is fabulous, this was such a hard challenge but you nailed it, love how you have used the kit. My mojo seems to have gone walk about to, maybe once the school holls are over we both will feel more like creating :)

Hiya Suzie! I think this card is adorable. Acetate is wicked hard I agree. Not much forgiveness, but looks like you championed here with this card! I cheated with my acetate on Saturday's post. :) Keep up the good work and the fun times with the little fellas!
