Frosted Designs ~ Acrylic

Monday again! How does it happen??? Seems like the weekend just gets here and then it is GONE!
And then it is time to start the week over again :) 

Today I have a project I have been meaning to make for a WHILE! 
I bought the acrylic words from ClearScraps way back in September
at the convention in Houston, and then found a frame - on clearance no less - a month or so later. 
But I never got around to actually making it. 
This weeks Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs is to 
use Acrylic, vellum or transparency on your project, so I dug everything out and here it is.

The overall size is 21 X 15 including frame. I used papers from 
Pink Paisley for my background and MME for the backing of the acrylic words.
(sorry about the poor lighting - the sun was not cooperating with me!)

After I cut my background paper I stamped it. I also stamped the acrylic and then added glitter and bling. 
I edged it with a paint pen before all of that. My flowers are a mix - the crocheted ones are from my dear friend who loves me enough to make them for me - you can find Sandy HERE on Ebay I also used some made from the wonderful stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. 

Be sure to stop by Frosted Designs and check out the challenges! 
Lots of fun going on over there!
Have a great Monday
Anita
