Clear(ly) Christmas!

I love working with acetate and really should get round to it more, so when I saw the current challenge over at the Creative Cottage I knew I had to make something to enter! I've really been trying to get a move along with my christmas cards recently, so decided that this was the way to go. I have used acetate for the card base and think that this gives such a great effect in itself, I dont like to cover it all up!

 I have used a Dovecraft snowflake punch, a Hobby Art christmas stamp and paper from The Snowman christmas paper pack. Not forgetting the Stickles of course!! Thanks for stopping by!! :)

That's lovely Gem. I've not used acetate but have seen it on the TV and they always seem to get it covered in fingerprints! Yours looks fab.
