Another card made for challenges

I seem to be on a bit of a roll with this card making now, still not too good at it though.

I have made this card for as I needed another card for when my new Grandson arrives.

The papers I used are from Pink Petticoat, Duck Egg Blue in the Little Dots collection and the pram is also from Pink Petticoat Sweet Cheeks Collection.

I cut the centre of the card using my Nestabilities Labels 1 and added the piece I had cut out to the inside back of the card with a white panel to allow a message to be written.

I added a piece of acetate which had been embossed with the Swiss Dots folder (I only have 2 folders) to the inside and added the pram which has been watercoloured with Perfect pearls in the water to add shimmer. The button is 2 layers, 1 card and the other a piece of embossed acetate and was cut using a circular punch and I added the red by colouring the star on the pram and threading the spotty ribbon through the button.

I have entered it into the

You just need to create something which includes embossed acetate


You need to create a card or project using the colours listed and the extra challenge is Holidays and travel, my card features a pram which I hope is classed as travel!
I am not sure I am allowed to enter the same card for both challenges but as I stand NO chance of winning its no big deal.

This is so cute - love it. Great use of the colours.
Well done you - getting two challenges with one card. The travel part of Colour Create is optional anyway but why not a pram? Thanks for joining us at Colour Create.

This is fabulous Maz. I love the way you cut the centre out with the nestie and then added the swiss dot acetate. Fantastic idea. That spash of red is just enough, isn't it? A wonderful way to welcome your new grandson. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.

This is a beautiful card Maz and i have also had a nosey on your blog today, gosh i don't know how you find the time to produce such beautiful cards etc with so many children/grandchildren, i bet there are a few more crafters in there somewhere. I find it realy hard to find time with just 3 children. i especially love the pop-up card you have done.
