Crafty Catz Challenge #322 ~ Fairies or something enchanting

Good morning, sorry I'm running a little late this morning and rushing too as am off to work in about an hour and still loads to do so I shall jsut get on with it,  This weeks new challenge over at Crafty Catz is set by our wonderful Nick and she would like to see Fairies or something Enchanting.  We are sponsored by

Prize 3 digi images

For my card I have used 'Uncommon Friendship' from our sponsor, coloured with a mix of markers and sparkle pens which don't really show in the picture.  The backing paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and I used some bronze coloured metallic paper which I distressed with embossing powders to try and give it a bit of  rusty look.  Before adding it to the image I sandwiched a piece of embossed acetate between image and frame.  I was trying for the look of an old porthole, not sure I really got there!  I finished off the card with a sentiment from Sentimental Sundays and an anchor cut on the Cricut.
Here I have tried to get a picture showing the embossed acetate and sparkle (not easy! lol)
