Take 3 - take 2

If you see what I mean lol.

Thought you might like to see a set of my new drawers

I caught hubby purloining them earlier to use as a filing cabinet, my did he get an ear bashing - then he tried the "if you loved me" line - no dear that one won't work either, if you want some buy your bl**dy own!!!

Five second warning.................all those with an acetate phobia please turn away now!!

Discovered eldest is off to a wedding do tonight and guess who gave away her wedding card stock yesterday............that would be me lol.
Using my favourite wedding stamp from Heart Art Studios I've stamped onto acetate with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail embossing powder, this has been layered onto white pearlised card and secured with red eyelets then layered onto red and silver mirri card. Base card is about 8 x 8 square, I've layered up silver mirri and more white pearl card and embossed a spellbinders heart top right, tied a white ribbon around, added a charm and some pearls.
I really wanted something red to pop the bow but couldn't find anything.........then I had a bright light moment and decided to colour the heart on this charm with a promarker....et voila!

This one covers:
Week 9 - a touch of red
Week 11 - acetate
Week 12 - off centre
Week 15 embossing
Week 25 ribbon

Challenges entered:
Less is More - take 3
Shopping our Stash - red, roses, ribbon (think you'll find all 3)
Fresh Brewed - emboss it
Aud Sentiments - anything goes
Lia Stampz - add a charm
