Goodness where does time go? The weeks are just flying by. This weeks challenge #27 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS is to use acetate on your card. Our design team have all come up with some super different ways to use it, so I'd take a look if I was you. We are sponsored this week by DIGITAL DELIGHTS. She has some fabulous images (and the DT all used a different one) and is offering a $10 gift voucher to spend in her online store to the winner.

I chose to use 'Cow'. I just couldn't resist her cute little face, lol.

I didn't start off with this in mind, but it sort of evolved as I went. I made the pelmet by cutting three Martha Stewart Heart punch borders and overlapping them, then mounted them on card, trimmed and attached with 3D foam. The curtains are strips of paper, inked on one side to give the effect of folds and stuck down underneath the pelmet. The window just has strips of card stuck over it and the flower she is looking at is stuck onto the front face of the insert.

The papers are a lovely magazine freebie from My Minds Eye. Excuse the difference in colour of the pics - one had flash and the other didn't. Doh!!!!!

I'd like to enter in the following challenges:
MY TIME TO CRAFT - Farm (you might not find a cow in a dress on a farm, but a cow all the same, lol).
CRAFTY CARDMAKERS - Birthday (no greeting on the front, but definitely a birthday card).
DIE CUT DREAMS - Fabric. (mine is faux fabric for the curtains, so might not be eligible. Worth a try though, lol).
CUPCAKE CRAFTS - Lace (but you can use punches for effect).
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - Something old, something new..etc. I used some old ribbon and some new papers and image and my new punch.
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS - One for the girls.
STAMPMAN CHALLENGES - Take two colours (Pink and Green).
