Using Acetate

Hello to all you lovely people... I have been having a little play with some acetate...I must admit I never use it enough. I have made a Christmas card with dark blue card and put the acetate through the middle,the backing paper on the inside is from Pink Petticoat and the tree is Marianne Creatables...I have white embossed the sentiment. I hope you like it.xxx
