My Craft Spot - Challenge #31 - See Through Projects

Hey everyone!
It's challenge time over at My Craft Spot - Challenge #31 - See Through Projects - use acetate or other clear products.
I decided to make a card using acetate. I love the look of embossing on acetate so, I used my mini monsters embossing folder. Just right for a halloween card, with all those little candies on it. I got the piece of acetate from the overlay that covered my cricut mat. Recycle!

Now make sure you head over to My Craft Spot and link up your projects for a chance to win a great prize and to see what the other fabulous Design Team members have created!! You won't be disappointed!
You can purchase the stamps I used on my card there and she also has some other fantastic stamps sets, hand dyed crinkle ribbon, bakers twine and the new seam binding ribbon.

Standard A2 size card
Patterned Paper - DCWV
Cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Sentiments - My Craft Spot - Happy Hauntings
Inside spider stamp - Studio G
Embossing folder - Mini Monsters
Scene Stamp - Martha Stewart stamp set
Bat embellie from Recollections
I also used black embossing powder, heat gun, atg, scor tape, black memento ink, yellow and grey bic markers

I cut this mat on the inside the same size as the one on the front so you couldn't see it when the card is closed. Love the font on this sentiment. 
This embossed acetate is really hard to photograph. Hope you can see all those little candies embossed on there. 
I embossed the sentiments and the scene stamp with black embossing powder. Love that look.

 Don't forget to play along with this weeks challenge and check out all the other projects at My Craft Spot!!

Oh! and don't forget about the BIG PARTY happening at My Craft Spot the whole week of Oct 31-Nov 5.
 We are celebrating the release of Kimberly's new stamps sets.  I got a little sneak peek and they are fantastic!! You won't want to miss it.  There will be lots of prizes and tons of projects!!
