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.

A stunning card. I love this effect, it's so classy looking. Definately a card you'd find in an arty west end shop for a lot of money.
I've got a couple of Scottish cards on my blog at the moment if you fancy a look,
