Now...on to our challenge...
Hello and welcome to this week's Timeless Tuesday! This is Deborah and I am your hostess this week. My "Seeing Clearly" challenge this week is to use Acetate anywhere in your project or card (FTTC228). That's right, it's time to dust off those clear pieces of "paper" and create something fun and unique!

 I had a 5x5 sheet of clear cardstock in my pile so I was thinking window with my acetate using Dahlia's. The designer layer of paper is laid onto my Color Made Easy Sunflower cardstock and die cut using Perfectly Pierced Window Die. The acetate is then adhered to the middle and sandwiched down onto the CME sunflower to create the window.  I stamped the inside of my card using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto classic white cardstock.

Colored with copic collections:



Then I layered the inside and left room on the sides to write in. My sentiment along with a few flourished jewels finish the front. Voila! This is so fun and you get the pretty outside and then the inside at the same time.
Today we have both our Flourishes Finest Design Team AND our Friends of Flourishes Team sharing their "Seeing Clearly" inspirations with you! Take a moment and leave some love on all of our designers' blogs for your chance to win this gorgeous new stamp set.
