A Challenge Card I made

I thought I would share with you this Card I made
It was a Challenge card  
On Free Craft Downloads we have a section in the Gallery where Forum Members can post decoupage / backing sheets they have made (Images used must be in the Public Domain, Your own art work or used with permission)

To make this card I used
1 A4 sheet of White card
Challenge sheet 1
Challenge sheet 2
Gold peel offs
1 A5 sheet of acetate
A Cupid backing Paper from FCD (A5 size)

I printed & cut out the decoupage sheets,
I assembled sheet 1 and 2 seperately
While they were drying I set to work on the card
I folded the White card in half  and cut out a rectangular aperture in the centre I measured the base of the decoupage picture and cut the aperture slightly larger so the backing paper could just be seen as well

In this picture you can see I used the cupid backing paper on the inside of the card  I closed the card and stuck the challenge 1 decoupage sheet in the centre of the aperture this way it ensured that when the card was open / closed the design could be seen in the correct position
I then stuck the sheet of acetate to the back of the open aperture

In this picture you can see that I stuck "challenge sheet 2" decoupage to the acetate I did this by closing the card and lining up the decoupage with the decoupage on the inside of the card   I also stuck a Gold border peel off around the aperture edges and some gold peel off leaves to both bottom sides
This picture shows the card slightly open so you can hopefully see the decoupage on the acetate and the back of the card
I would like to say Thank you to Suan - It was her that set us the challenge using her decoupage sheets
She has no objections to people using her decoupage sheets for Projects / Card making but the sheets are not to be sold or put on CD's to be sold

I used the cupid backing paper on the card because I thought the colour went well with the dress the lady was wearing  I chose not to add a greeting to the card - another forum member said it would make a nice Valentine card - Thanks Barb   a nice idea
