Hi everyone and welcome to this month's challenge at Creations by Gill McCall. The challenge is to use acetate on any project you like. Not my favourite medium to work with but here is what I came up with:)

Apologies for the poor photo quality but the acetate glares  in the exposure!
This is a sort of stepper card and the acetate is attached to the front and back which prevents it from collapsing!

the butterflies are from a  Joanna Sheen cottage garden cd and printed on acetate.
A couple of punched strips and a few punched flowers decorate the front edge.
The sentiment is stamped onto an SU label stamp

The large flower was punched out 3 times and layered up with a brad.
Pearls are added to the butterflies and the punched flowers.

Please check out the rest of the DT cards for inspiration and hopefully you will join us in this challenge. Just remember you need to be a follower of Gill's blog to be considered for the challenge, good luck!

You've done very well with the acetate - not a favourite with me either as it seems to have a mind of its own.

Your acetate butterflies are gorgeous, Val. Such a lovely stepper card, and a great use of acetate.

Hope you're okay down there. I gather this deluge is about to hit the south today. It was dreadful here yesterday our garden is now completely waterlogged, thank goodness our house is elevated. I feel so sorry for those who have had their homes flooded. Take care! xx

Good afternoon Valerie:0) This is gorgeous Val, the butterflies are so pretty and what a great idea to add the acetate . That'll stop it collapsing, my one dislike is when cards don't stay on the mantlepiece :0)I hope you enjoy the tennis :0) Have fun today, Gay xxx
