Celebrating you . . .

As soon as I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch, I KNEW that the offset, partial circle needed to be a cutout backed with acetate.  It just screamed to me!  And can I say, I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out?!  Unfortunately, it is raining today and I had to switch to my old camera because the battery on mine died and it just will not charge, so the picture doesn't do the card justice.  But who am I kidding, my pictures are all kind of dark anyway.  Anyway, I don't always love the way ideas in my head translate into actual cards, but this time I do!  The card is so elegant and the acetate is a really neat touch, even if it did make writing on the inside a little difficult. : )
 This second picture shows the acetate a little bit better.
