Young Crafters Unite - Challenge #7

Hi everyone!

This is my second post today. Please scroll down to see my card for the new SPARKS challenge =)

Today I have my card for the seventh YCU challenge to share with you. Please go check it out on the YCU blog! The challenge this time is:

Here's my card for this challenge:

This was my first time ever making a clear card, and it was quite an interesting experience. I kept getting fingerprints and smudges on my clear acetate cardbase, and finally had to stop thinking about trying to wipe it off and just leave it. I decided to make this a sympathy card. I found a pretty patterned paper in my scraps, and cut it out with a spellbinders die. I also cut the next size up die twice out of white paper. I adhered one of them to the front of the card and one to the inside to be able to write a message on. I stamped my sentiment, and distressed the edges of my diecut pieces and sentiment strip using one color of distress ink. I added a pearl to each side of the sentiment, to finish off the sentiment strip. All of my paper layers were adhered using my pink atg.
