Linda mentioned in one of her comments recently where do my ideas come from. Well I if it comes from Pinterest or a blog I share the link with you, but mostly I am thinking of the person it is going to and I start looking through my supplies and when I come across a stamp, paper or die that I think would work for them it just goes from there. That is how this card came about. I found these acetate sheets that I had bought at the Scrapbook convention a few years ago and I hadn't used any from this set. They are images printed on Acetate and at the convention they showed putting glitter behind them and they were all so pretty. You can see the set this one came from HERE.
Since there was roses in the image I decided to go with rose paper for my background, now how to frame it? I decided to go fancy and that led me to this die, which I cut out of metallic paper to go along with the dragonfly, it needed something else so that is when the ribbon and tag came along.
Here is a close up of the shimmer with the glitter I added to the backside of the acetate.
Since the acetate is clear I needed some light behind before I added it to the green die cut frame so I ran the acetate image through my Xyron sticker machine to mount it onto some white cardstock.
