Less Is More + ColourQ

I must admit that when I saw Chrissie & Mandi's challenge over at Less is More I was a little stumped as to what I would do.  I don't often use acetate as I haven't had very good experiences with it.  I have tried making cards with little success and I have bought acetate shapes only to realize later on I just don't know what to do with them.  But... I so enjoy the Less is More challenges that I knew I would over come my hesitation and managed to come up with a card.  It helped that I had started working on an idea for a card for the current color challenge over at ColourQ.   I dug around in my stash and came up with some acetate shapes that I had bought a few years ago.  One was this bracket that I inked up with Staz-On White Cotton ink.   The little dress form comes from one of my favorite small stamp sets from PaperTrey Ink, as does the sentiment.  I was going to put the buttons on the card in a different spot, but thought they would look better grouped with the other items. 



Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft & white; SU! Cherry Cobbler; Ink:  Memento Tangelo, PTI True Black & Staz-on White cotton; Buttons: PTI & DeNami Designs; Ribbon: PTI Simply Chartruse; Sizzix Swiss Dot ef

Great take on the challenge Rosemary! I am "afraid" of acetate,so I too have no idea what to do. But it's encouraging to see that you can use it so sparingly! I totally love your card with that dress form!
