CFC#57 Challenge: Clear as Day

Helloooo!  Kari back with you to share a card I have made for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge.  I haven't submitted an entry to this challenge for a few weeks, and thought I would get back into the swing of things.  I haven't had the CAS mojo, so I opted out for a little bit.  This week challenges us to use either acetate or vellum on our projects.  I have only made a few "clear" cards - and they CAN be challenging.  So - I thought I would break out my acetate - and THIS is what I came up with.

It is very warm afternoon here - and I was inspired by the birds that take a bird bath on a hot summer day.  So - I have these cute card stock stickers from Echo Park's Hello Summer line.  I first punched out some cloud images from masking paper, and applied them to my white card stock insert.  I then used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and applied it to my card stock to create my sky.  I removed my masks - and you are left with a beautiful sky.  I took the adorable bird on a limb sticker and applied it to the outside of my acetate card and put some pop dots to create some dimension between my white card stock insert and my acetate card base.  I then added this cute butterfly sticker to add a bit more of color.  My sentiment is from Unity and Authentique called Direction of Happy.  

Here is another look at my card.

I hope that you are having a nice fulfilled weekend!!
