Acetate with a Hint of Pink

Crikey, that was a close shave. Well not really a close shave as the deadline has passed and I didn't get my DT card for Dottie's World made in time. It has been a crazy weekend so far and I honestly haven't had any time, so I just TOOK half an hour to quickly make my DT card for Dottie's World, and half an hour is literally how long it has taken me, including taking pictures etc. Must be one of the quickest cards I have ever made so I apologise for any mistakes! Check out Dottie's World for some fabulous cards from the design team.

I love this cat image from the Cat Collection and grabbed the chance to use it today. Here is the challenge from Nicola:

A is for Acetate with a hint of pink!!It can be a whole acetate card,an aperture of acetate,an embellishment as long as Acetate is there some where & as October is Breast Cancer awareness month I'd like to see some pink!!!

My card is acetate folded in half and rimmed with Cotton Pink Stickles (not quite dry so excuse any stray bits). The cat was printed on a sheet of Prima Whisper "Sigh" paper and Cotton Pink Stickles has been applied to the circles. This is double-sided so it looks good from the other side too. I cut the ball out and matted it on a K&Co Wild Saffron Tag. It has a pink acetate flower in the centre with a Basic Grey brad in the middle.

The corner has been cut out from the same sheet of Prima paper and dotted with pearls.

Pop over and join in the challenge :o)
