Fun with Pinkfresh Acetates #2 - AWESOME

Hi, Friends.......

I am back with my second of three cards made with the fabulous Pinkfresh acetate ephemera. You can see the first one HERE.  I LOVE playing with these transparent pieces of joy on my leftover "bubble wrap backgrounds" from an old challenge on Darnell's blog! (Yes...I still have a whole stack of them!! Ha.) The glossy photo paper and the see-through acetates give a lovely shine to this card.

This time I used sunshiny, summery colors, which I badly need during these dark winter days. In the winter, summer is my favorite season!!! (Guess which season is my favorite in the summer....??? I just can't be satisfied!! Ha.)

I love the light, airy look of this card and the motivational words on the tag......which encourage us to love, to be positive and thankful, and to not forget to laugh, smile and dream. Our family is going through some difficult times right now and so I really need to have these words in front of me at all times!!

Supplies used include:
Pinkfresh Studio - The Mix No. 1 Acetate Tags (retired)
Pinkfresh Studio - Life Noted Acetate Die Cut Words (retired)
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Rhinestones
Tombow - Mono Aqua Liquid Glue for attaching those transparent acetates!
Background: glossy photo paper and Distress Inks

Hope you like my card. Maybe these sunny colors will brighten your day like they do mine! Thank you for stopping by.
