Less is More nations flag colours

A very quick last minute card for this challenge, I had a bit of a disaster earlier & forgot to recharge batteries for camera.
I got back from Tesco dripping wet & dropped 4pints of milk which exploded all over the kitchen floor, you wouldn't believe how far it spashed, even the window got it & it's at the other end of the kitchen, hopefully I've got it all!
On to the card

CAS Acetate Card

Evening all, have you survived the weather? I thought I might see the Ark passing by today! so wasn't going anywhere too soon this morning so managed to have a lie in, most unusual for me, son was going off to a piping competition outside Stirling, after hanging about a bit hoping it was cancelled he set off, he came back an hour ago & there's lots of sopping wet kit around the house, pipes dismantled drying off , kilt will prob dry out sometime next week ready for Glasgow on Saturday.
Anyhow as I had the afternoon stuck here thought I'd give this a go in between reading my book.
This is something different for me, I've only ever made one other acetate card & I did get in a bit of  a muddle with it, some backgrounds came out a bit harsh so went with a softer look.
Apologies for the pic, it was difficult to show the acetate front without looking like the tree was falling off the page, honest it's straight will try to add another pic when batteries charged.
PB Fantasy Tree stamped with white Stazon
Hero arts sentiment & snowflakes

Aceta Ribbon

No card today

I thought I'd add this piccy of a rose before it dies off, it's the first flower from a cutting I took from a bush belonging to an old neighbour who died two years ago, it was always full of magnificent blooms & the new people were going to dig it up. i didn't think anything would come of it, especially after last winter, I wish I'd taken the picture earlier as the colour wasn't so faded, hopefully I'll get another.

The weathers been atrocious here, but a wee bit of sunshine today so fingers crossed, also can't get any crafting done as electrian been working during the day & I just can't settle when there's workmen around & at the moment I don't have any lights & can hardly see what I'm typing, hope things get back to normal soon.
Take care
