CAS Mix Up Die Cut Acetate Reminder

More beautiful and creative CAS Mix Up Acetate cards by our talented DT and Guest Designer,  

Here is my card using Stamping + Acetate Alcohol Ink Tissue Background + Die Cuts

Close Up showing all the pretty shine from die cut flowers and copper foil frames.

I chose a background from my Alcohol Inked Acetate with tissue paper from my stash!
I used Pinata alcohol inks: Senorita Magenta and Gold Metallic and T.H. Watermelon alcohol inks.

I am sharing my Marigold Alcohol Ink on Acetate Tissue Paper Card from a previous post.
It has all the same steps that were on the background that I used for my die cut flowers.

I loved the shine from the alcohol inks and especially the gold metallic alcohol ink.  
The SU Copper foil paper matched the gold closer than the SU Gold foil, 
so the Copper was my choice for framing my MB die cut flowers and PB sentiment.

I attached my main image to SU Thick Whisper White card front using fun foam
and popped up sentiment using 3M foam tape.

My card will be for a dear 88 year old forever girl friend,  who is now living in assisted living.
Daisy has the sweetest smile and the most wonderful caring nature.
She is a retired Xray Tech,  whose hobby has always been gardening.  
I know Daisy will like her card because she is always so easy to please:-)
