Best Wishes

The CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week is a favorite of mine: using acetate or vellum.  I ADORE making acetate cards......they're just that little bit different, and always get a wow review because of it.  The background paper I used is VERY pale, so I had to brighten my card quite a bit for you to see the details.  Here's my entry:

CAS-ual Fridays 57

supplies: clear acetate card, design paper from Melissa Frances "5th Avenue", Hero Arts CL267 Card Messages, Stampology Black ink, Hero Arts/Studio Calico #331065 Lattice Background, StazOn white ink,  Cheery Lynn butterfly die (thank you, Yvonne), pink pearls, Ranger Glossy Accents to secure butterfly to front of card

I have a wedding and a shower coming up this summer, so this will come in handy......
