Natalie and Amy's July challenge - die cuts and flowers

Time for another challenge over at Natalie and Amy's and this month it's to use die cuts and flowers. Please pop over and take a look and join in. As always, there's a great prize up for grabs.

I thought I'd have a play with some acetate for this card, something I've not done before and I'm pretty happy with the result although I need to work out how to stop it bending quite so much.

I took a 6 x 6 card blank and used the Memory Box Cosmo Border right at the fold. I then cut a piece of acetate to 6 x 6 and embossed it with the Spellbinders Lovely Lattice M-bossabilities plate and stuck it in place with some double sided tape. I used a Spellbinders Labels die to cut out the shape for the sentiment and stamped the words from Sheena Douglass - Silhouette Grasses. The flowers are Joy! die cuts and the branches are CC Designs and they are fixed with white brads topped with diamond stickles on top.
