Acetate Aqua Anniversary

The theme today at Top Tip Tuesday is to make something which includes items which begin with your initials.  So my letter is "A" and at first I struggled to think of anything beginning with the letter A, but my teamies helped me out with a whole host of a's, including anniversary and acetate, so that's what I used.   I also used the colour aqua, which makes 3 a's !!

I created a step card, and folded a 'tent' of acetate over it.  (shamelessly cased from a gorgeous Christmas creation that I found on Sonia's Crafty Patch). Although you can't see it too well in the photo, the back panel of the acetate is embossed with a vine embossing folder.  I used pale aqua papers to make the background look like sky, and used some grass and tree die cuts to create an outdoors scene.

Because it is an anniversary card, I also added a couple of heart borders, one hanging down from the acetate at the top fold, and the other on one of the steps.  The image is called 'roses are red' and kind of fits in with the love theme of my anniversary card.

Hope you like it.  Acetate is so hard to photograph and not get a shine reflecting from the lamp or camera flash!  This is the best shot I managed to get of it!
