Use Acetate at Charisma Cardz

Good morning.
This is my first post for today - I'll be back in the blink of an eye with another :o)

For now though I would like to share my DT card for


and this week it was my turn to pick the theme and I chose


Here's what I did:

And here's how I did it:
I started with a square of acetate and pounced some Distress Inks onto and then over-stamped with Kanban  Butterflies and Text image and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I also stamped the individual butterflies that come with the set onto parchment and heat embossed with white EP and then fussy cut to mount onto the main image panel.
A few adhesive pearls to finish them off.
Then I mat and layered this onto a panel that I had punched using Martha Stewart Scrolled Lace PATP 
I also punched another piece the same size to mount behind the image panel on the inside of the acetate card base to hide the adhesive and also to write my Happy Birthday message to my lovely blogging friend Sue who's birthday was a couple of weeks ago :o)
