One Card for Two Challenges

Good Afternoon Girls, Im so sorry for being late but Ive had one hell of a job to photo this card as the front is acetate and you know what that does it not only glares it shows all the reflections as well, then there was the problem with the weather, its extremely dull here today and its trying to rain , so if this isnt a particularly good photo please forgive me.
Todays card has been made for the following challenges Mo's "Seasons" and Cute Card Thursdays "So Transparent" and thats the one thats caused all the trouble. Anyway Ive used this cute image of Bella with her dog Bronte attempting to skate on the local pond. Ive printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens after which Ive cut her out completely ready to stick on the acetate front.
The main card is a 6"x 6" white base with a blue piece of card stuck on top, the scene in the background is of Crafters Companion Cute Companions Christmas Cd, how about all those Cs, anyway Ive cut it out and stuck it to the blue card, then folded a piece of acetate and fixed it to the back with some tape, on to this I have stuck Bella and used some stickles on the bushes in green and red for the holly. The sentiment is one of the Crafters Companion Adorables stamps that Ive stamped on the inside, Im hoping to use this card for one of my granddaughters.
This card is for the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley

Taking photos of acetate is just the worse nightmare.

But it looks pretty good and is a really lovely card.

Beautiful card, Shirley. And the acetate seems to have photographed beautifully to me - I can see it's there, but I can also see what's behind it perfectly!

Oh Shirley, don't worry about the photography, I can see what you have done, and such a splendid job, love the way you have cut out the image and pop up. Just beautiful... I agree acetate is hard to work with...
