Bright n cheery!

I had a little play with lots of stamps and techniques using these hero arts acetate cards which I've had for ages! I stamped the front of the card with one of the autumn leaves flowers and blazing red stazon ink - came out more magenta-ish on the acetate!

The floral scene is from a judikin's stamp using markers, then I pulled the colours out slightly with my water brush. I cut it to fit this scalloped punch for a nice little border!

I cut a tag shape, and applied versamagic ink using the direct to paper technique; then I randomly stamped another autumn leaves flower with a slightly darker shade; then I used another shade to stamp my penny black butterfly border. Then I stamped my favourite thank you sentiment (by penny black) in black.
I positioned the sentiment so that the main message is not revealed until you open the card, but the "thank you" is visible from the front! I punched a hole in the acetate and threaded through some ribbon.
It's a bit hard to see, but it's actually a very bright n cheery card!
Hubby is going to choose a winner later tonight, so any last minute entries are welcome (up to 8pm GMT)!
