Easter Lily Clear and Simple

Challenge winner
Last week I received an email asking me to be a Guest Designer for this weeks challenge at AiFactory.  I was honored to be asked and just had to say yes!  I have worked with many of their images already so I knew that I would have fun. 

The challenge for this week (#27) was "Clear and Simple".  I had an idea all planned out for this, but that quickly changed.  I "thought" I had clear buttons, so I searched high and low and came up with nothing.  Visits to two different stores left me empty handed as it was time to think of something else.  I decided to make an acetate card ~ after all, you can't get any clearer than that and actually I'm glad I had to change directions because I really love how this turned out!  

I printed out the Easter Lily image two times so I could layer the flower portion on dimensionals.  I colored the image with my copics, cut it out and placed it on this subtle designer paper I found hiding in my stash and then layered that on white paper.  The inside of the card uses the same designer paper layered on white.  A soft triple organdy bow finished off the card.  

Here is a different view of the card: 

We'd love to have you join in this weeks "Clear and Simple" challenge.  While it is not necessary to use AiFactory Stamps, if you have them, we'd love to see them (and you can get a few freebie's here).  You have until March 17th, midnight EST to link your creation on the challenge post.  If you post to any online galleries, please use the keywords "AIF010" and "aifactory". This weeks lucky winner will receive this beautiful Lily Collection Digital Stamp Set:

Thanks again ladies for letting me be a part of the challenge this week!

Congrats on GDT. Lovely card.

I saw on TGF that you need members and was wondering if I could join you? I don't have a team as of yet and am still looking.
