Acetate card

I made this card for Noonies 40th, *cough cough* I mean 21st birthday
Its in a new technique I wanted to try.
I took a piece of a4 acetate & folded it in half. I punched 2 holes, one 1/2 an inch in, the other 1 inch in at the centre, then opened it (you end up with 4 holes) & folded the edges to the centre
I coloured in the magnolia stamp and attached the wording which I had already printed out. Onto her back I fastened a stripe of acetate that I had folded into a Z shape. This allows it to "float".
I then added peel offs to the 4 inner corners.

I threaded a piece of ribbon through 2 of the holes, round the back of the card & then through the other 2 holes, finishing it off by tying the 2 ends into a bow. This holds the card closed while still keeping its 3d appearance.

I added a martini glass and bottle to the front.
I printed off my birthday message and stuck it to the back of the card.

I would like to enter this card into...
