Drunken Stampers I Can See Clearly

hi all and welcome to my first challenge for  Drunken stampers it is challenge 87 and details follow below.

Challenge #87 is to use acetate! Acetate cards are always stunning but sometimes one needs an excuse to make one!

Grab some acetate! Don’t have any? Check out any packaging that your craft or non-craft goodies come in! (Especially that clear clamshell packaging that’s used for everything!)

Then decide if you want to use it for an entire card base, a window, a charm or whatever your imagination decides and come play with us.
this is my dt inspiration for you all. hope you like.

I used
pink card
brown card
nestanilities scalloped circle (to make flower)
sizzix die
border punch
